Are you all ready for Thanksgiving break? I love working while my kids sleep. Should I let them keep sleeping and enjoy the quiet? I should probably wake them up so that they can have a productive day, too, right? Such a tough decision! I'm hurrying to get this adorable Nativity Bingo game up for you before I take a little Thanksgiving blog break.
Nativity Bingo for Christmas
Ever since I posted Christmas Bingo, I've been wanting to create a game that was about the real meaning of Christmas. (And my readers have been asking for it, too!) Nativity Bingo will never be allowed in a school classroom, but families can enjoy it. Spending so much time and energy on Santa Claus, magic Elves and finding the perfect Christmas gifts leaves us little time for rest. It's nice to sit back and think about the real meaning of Christmas, too.
Who says Christmas games should only focus on Santa Claus and snowmen? Play Nativity Bingo after teaching the kids the Christmas story. It's a good way to remember the story and have a little bit of fun. I even used a game board with the children at church the other day as we learned a Christmas song (Picture a Christmas).
So, for all those people who have been asking for a Nativity Bingo game (and for those who haven't been asking but still want it), it's finally here! Click the link below to download a family set (6 bingo boards, 2 pages of calling cards, and 1 instruction page) of Nativity Bingo.
If you would like a higher-resolution game with more unique boards, you can purchase the full game in my Etsy store. Click the download link below to see and download the full Nativity Bingo game.
How to Play
This game is a little different than traditional bingo, so check out the instructions before you play (also included with the download):
Cut the two pages of calling cards into individual cards and put them into a bag or hat. To play, pull a card out of the hat, and call out what is on the card (or just show the card). Players look for that picture on their card and cover it up. Continue pulling cards from the bag one at a time until someone gets five in a row. (You cannot play blackout because every card has every picture on it. This game is meant to be played for traditional five-in-a-row bingo only.)
The adorable graphics in this game were mostly created by The Happy Graphics with a few created by me.
Speaking of nativities, I have to show you my absolute favorite nativity set. (I'm still waiting for some store to have a going-out-of-business sale so I can sweep in and buy the whole set for cheap!) *Affiliate links.
I don't think I'll ever own the whole set, but a girl can dream, can't she? Isn't it beautiful? What's your favorite nativity set?
