Christmas Bingo

Finishing up a little game 
for Christmas Eve -
Christmas Bingo!

B-I-N-G-O    B-I-N-G-O

 If any of you would like to play with your families...
it's all ready to print

 1. So everyone gets a blank Bingo card.
Get the Bingo card pdf hereCut in half.

2. Give each person a pen and a little list of words.
These are Christmas and winter words.  
There are 4 lists on a page, just quarter this sheet.
Word list pdf is here.

3.  Tell them to pick any 24 words
and write them in PEN ;) 
on their Bingo card.
For kids - pick words that you can draw pictures of.

For these cards, 
I use colored paper
 or regular white paper
not cardstock, 
because you'll be throwing these away.

The Bingo Caller needs a master list of words 
(that little pile in the lower right corner).  
So...this Master List pdf has the words
 a little bigger for you
 to cut out and mix up and start calling!
And they need candy or
 pennies or beans or something for marking.

I buy a big bag of Skittles at Costco and 
give each person 1/4 of a cup.

That way they can eat a little and
 have enough for the game.

And there are prizes!!
Of course, we'll have the talk -- 
"Not everyone in life is a winner, 
especially at our house on Christmas Eve."  
(I promise I won't say it quite like that). 
"It's a game." 
"And I hope I win." 
"Enjoy your Skittles."

Decide ahead of time, how to handle 'ties'.  
We've never had a tie, but I don't like them 
(cuz you'd run out of prizes too fast),
so someone better shout Bingo first - really loud. :)  

Let's Play!

Here are the 3 pdfs:

  6. Wow!! I love it. It's our bingo game tonight. I'm totally i do this....or my regular bingo? Claudia fills plain white envelopes with money, various $1, $5, $10 and a $20.
    do you think i could pull this off for 30 people??

    1. Money would be nice too! Yes, you could do it for that many people easy, because I've already done the work haha. I thought Dad would be willing to play Bingo, don't you think? What do you use for markers?

  7. What fun! Thanks for doing all the work for us, and have a very Merry Christmas!

  8. Awesome:) Thanks so much for sharing! We don't have kids around our house, but I'm sending your blog link to my friend with many grands!

  9. LOVE this Corrie!!!
    My kids would have so much fun...I might have to get 2 bags of skittles (I think I'll have some eating away and they won't have any left to "play")
    I need to print off a bundle, right after I get some more printer ink. ;)

    Thanks for such a fun idea!

  10. What fun. I've also played Bingo to the theme of "QUILT". Always fun, no matter what the theme.



  11. Great idea! Hope it was a happy one.

  12. So nice post and BLOG, Great work you have done. Keep it up.

  13. Your bingo game is exactly what I was looking for to play on our last day of school before Christmas break. I love not having to use a lot of printer ink, plus it's good for the kids to write their own words. Thanks!
