Today we have a game of Christmas Bingo for you to print out and play. There are 4 bingo cards and one master sheet. Click the button at the bottom of this page to download the bingo game.

You might like to get an adult to laminate the cards for you. This way they will last much longer and you can  play next Christmas too.

You will need some bingo markers to hid an image once it’s been called. Perhaps you have some counters in another game? If not you can cut some out of paper or card or use dried beans*. If the cards are laminated you can use erasable marker pens that you can wipe off after playing.

History of Bingo

*A type of bingo game started in Italy in 1530. Almost 100 years ago a man from New York, Edwin S. Lowe, made up a game he called “Beano”.  He called it Beano because he used dried beans for the markers. One day, when playing with some friends, the person who won got mixed up and shouted “Bingo” instead of “Beano”. Edward liked this name and started selling Lowe’s Bingo games.

 Video

I can’t find a Christmas Bingo video but here’s a fun video about the dog named Bingo. You can join in and clap along to the song.
