How to Play Christmas Bingo

Christmas Bingo is not only entertaining for all ages, but it’s also really simple to explain and play. ! I also love that it can be played with just me and my kids or with a larger group. You can play Christmas bingo at home, school, church, or any party. 

  • First, make sure everyone has a Christmas bingo sheet. You can find my free printable below! There are 8 different bingo cards in this free printable. Make sure those sitting by each other have different cards!
  • The last page of the printable has all the calling cards. Once you print this page and cut out all the cards, these will be what you use to call out what picture to mark off next. I like to put the cards in a bowl or basket when we play, but you could also shuffle them up and place them in a pile.
  • After everyone has their Christmas bingo cards, give them something to cover their squares with. There are so many ideas of things that you can use. Try using something Christmas themed to keep everyone engaged! You can use anything from bits of ribbon to scraps of paper. See my tips section for more ideas!
  • Don’t forget to put a marker on your “Free Space!”
  • Use the calling card pile or basket to draw one card at a time. After a calling card is drawn everyone must find where the corresponding picture is on their Christmas bingo cards and cover it up with a marker. 
  • Once you fill up a row of 5 horizontally, vertically, or diagonally you can yell out “BINGO!” The first person to yell bingo wins!

Helpful Tools We Love When Downloading Printables

  • Printer– I love my HP+ printer that uses Instant Ink. I love it because we can use as much color ink as you want for one low cost starting at $.99/ month for ink. Try it out for free here!
  • Cardstock- I always recommend printing on cardstock. This makes it way more durable so you don’t have to worry about printing it time and time again.
  • Laminator / Laminating Sheets- Again, for added durability, grab a laminator and laminating sheets so that you can use this again and again!
  • Scissors (I seriously love these ones)
  • Dry Erase Pens- Use dry erase pens so that you can wipe your laminated printable clean over and over again for endless use!

Tips for Playing Christmas Bingo

Keeping everyone happy while playing any activity isn’t always easy,. but the good news is I have lots of tips and tricks that come from years of experience! Following these tips will help your Christmas Bingo game run smoothly, stay engaging, and be entertaining for all players, no matter the age or expertise. 

Have a Bingo Night

This is a great family activity but it’s also so much fun to do with friends and bigger groups! This would be a great activity to do at a Christmas Party! 

If you do decide to invite people over, make sure you’re ready with the best Christmas treats. I love making these Christmas Tree cupcakes or Christmas Finger Jello! Yum. 

Laminate or Use Cardstock

If you want to keep your set of Bingo cards nice and durable, I definitely recommend laminating your Christmas Bingo set! I know that laminating can sound difficult or intense, but I promise it’s easy and 100 times worth it. This will help prevent rips, tears, and even spills! 

If you’re not quite ready to laminate, you could always just print your Christmas bingo set on cardstock. Adding the extra weight to the paper will keep your cards looking perfect after many uses!

Use Creative Markers

A great way to make your Christmas Bingo extra festive is with some cute unique markers.There are so many different things that you could use. You could run to any dollar store or Target and get little candies. Kids and adults love this because after you play you get a yummy treat! Some of my favorite suggestions for treat markers include gumdrops, sugar plums (they’re better than you might think if you’ve never tried them!), peppermint candies, candy cane Hersey’s Kisses, or Christmas M&Ms!  

If you are in need of some non-treat options, you can use these adorable Christmas buttons, snowflake buttons, these mini shiny bells, fluffy Christmas pom poms, or these flat Christmas marbles.

Make Conversation

Any chance to start a conversation with your friends and family is a good one! If you are playing with younger children, you can use the pictures to talk about all the fun parts of the Christmas season! Remember that all of this is new to them so it’s a great way to get them excited!. 

With your older kids, the pictures are bound to bring up past memories and traditions that you can talk about. You might even decide on some fun activities that you want to try this Christmas season!

Create Teams

This is a great way to invite some friendly competition to your game. You can play boys vs. girls, in partnerships, or kids vs. adults to see what team can all get bingo first. 

If you have younger kids that are playing with you, try teaming them up with an adult or an older sibling. It’ll help them get involved and have more fun! But don’t be afraid to let them take the lead. It’s a pretty simple game to catch on to. 

Give Away Prizes!

Even if I am just playing with my family, I love to give prizes to the winners of our bingo games! It’s a great way to get everyone excited to play… especially your teenagers that might be a bit hesitant at first.  I’ve used everything from picking what’s for dinner to a special homemade treat as my prizes. 

If you want to get a bit more creative with your prizes, or if you have a group, you should try to come up with something Christmas themed!  Some of my favorite prizes are these sugar cookie cutters, a hot chocolate kit, a little DIY snowglobe, or even an ugly sweater ornament kit!
