The holidays are a great time for hanging out with family in person or from afar. This Christmas game can be played in person or via a zoom call if you’re doing some socially distanced family time.
This game does include Santa, reindeer, elves, etc so if you are a Santa-free household this will not be the holiday bingo game for you. I hope to do a nativity themed bingo set next year. But you may like this 3D Nativity craft.
What You’ll Need
You don’t need much to play Christmas Bingo. Download the game and print on cardstock preferably but regular paper will work too.
You will need a pair of scissors to cut out the calling cards and you’ll need a pencil, pen, crayon, etc to cross out items on your card once they are called. Better yet, grab some small items, peppermint candies, coins, pieces of paper, whatever you want to use as markers so that you can use the cards over and over again.
You can also grab a set of Bingo chips to use with any bingo cards. You’ll just want to supervise your toddlers and preschoolers closely with these as they can be a choking hazard.
How to play Christmas Bingo
I think most of us have probably played Bingo at some point in our lives but here’s a quick refresher on how to play if you need it.
1 – Each player takes a playing card. This set includes 6 different cards so if you have more than 6 players some people will have the same cards. Go ahead and have everyone mark their free spot.
2 – Place the calling cards upside down in a stack or pile.
3 – You can elect someone to be the “caller” or take turns. The caller picks out one of the calling cards and shows it to the group. Using a pencil or bingo marker cross off or cover that item on your board.
4 – When someone completes one row, vertical, horizontal, or diagonal they yell out Bingo. You can continue to play until 2-3 people have won or start a new game every time someone gets a Bingo.
You can also play until Blackout (when someone covers all the pictures on their card).
Printable Christmas Bingo Cards
This set of Christmas Bingo Cards is a five page PDF printable. There are 6 variations of the Bingo card and one page of calling cards. Before you play you’ll need to cut out the 15 calling cards and cut apart the Bingo cards as they will print out two to a page.
I recommend printing them on cardstock if you want to use them more them once, especially if you’re playing with young kids.
