Why Play Hanukkah Bingo?

Games play a significant role during Hanukkah, contributing to the festive atmosphere and fostering togetherness among family and community members. Even people who don’t celebrate the holiday can benefit from playing and learning more about it.

Cultural Learning: Games offer an opportunity to educate and pass down traditions. Hanukkah bingo is a great way for children and newcomers to the holiday to learn about the story, symbols, and customs associated with Hanukkah in a fun and interactive way. This printable bingo game includes a menorah, dreidels, gelt (chocolate coins), and other traditional holiday symbols.

Family Bonding: Hanukkah is a family-oriented holiday, and games provide an avenue for families to come together, interact, and create lasting memories. Playing games encourages communication, laughter, and shared experiences, strengthening familial bonds.

Educational Value: Games like Hanukkah bingo can be educational, helping children and adults alike learn about Jewish history, customs, and values associated with Hanukkah. They can also reinforce important skills like counting, strategy, and critical thinking.

Promoting Fun and Relaxation: Amidst the holiday rush, games provide a chance for relaxation and enjoyment. They serve as a break from the hectic pace of celebrations and allow everyone to unwind in a lighthearted and enjoyable manner.

To Use Hanukkah Printable Game Boards:

Setting up the game:

Begin by setting up the game beforehand. Download and print the free printable pages of Hanukkah bingo cards and calling card sheet (near the bottom of the post) and cut apart. I prefer using a paper trimmer for quick cutting and straight edges, but scissors will work too. 

Gather at least 25 small bingo markers for each person, and prizes for the winners if desired.

To play Hanukkah bingo:

  1. Pass out bingo sheets to each person or team, along with the bingo markers you have chosen.
  2. Place the calling cards in a small bowl or bag and shake to mix thoroughly.
  3. Make sure each player places a marker on the center free space to start.
  4. As the bingo caller pulls a calling card from the bowl, players add a marker to the matching picture space.
  5. The winner is the first person to match 5 in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) and shout “BINGO!” 

Alternative Bingo Winning Plays

Changing up the winning move from a single straight line is a great way to make this fun Hanukkah game shorter or longer. Try these options:

  • Four Corners– cover all 4 of the board corners
  • X-OUT – match both diagonals through the center square
  • Cris-Cross – match vertical and horizontal through the center square
  • Make a Letter – try marking a T, L, O, or I to win
