Setting Up for Christmas Bingo

Before the big day, you’ll need to prepare your Christmas Bingo Game. It won’t take long, but it’s easier to just take out the game when you’re ready to play.

Print the free Christmas bingo sheets and calling card page. The sheets are designed 2 per US letter size page to save paper and printing costs.

Mid-weight white cardstock is my favorite for bingo printables, since it’s more durable than standard printer paper. Printer paper will also work, but expect them to last only one day of use.

Cut apart the bingo game boards and calling cards. I use a paper cutter for speed and straight edges, but scissors will work too.

You’ll also need something to use as bingo markers. Use inexpensive, small items like candies (Christmas m&ms or festive kisses,) buttons, or punched paper shapes.

*tip: laminating the bingo sheets using either a laminating machine or self-laminating envelopes will allow reusing the cards through the whole fall season, even year after year.

You can use dry erase markers on laminated bingo sheets, though I still find the bingo cards don’t last as nicely with all the erasing.

Adding extra festivity

I always love going all-in on the holiday spirit. The extra level of cheesy theming adds so much fun to the party! So turn on some Christmas music and plop on your Santa hat as you call out the cute Christmas icons.

How to Play Christmas Bingo

Most people have played a game of traditional bingo before.  But reviewing the rules is always a good idea, to avoid confusion and prevent any quarreling.

To play Christmas Bingo: 

  1. Pass out different bingo cards to each player or team. Place the calling cards in a bowl and mix them well.
  2. Give each player at least 25 bingo markers (more if using candy, since some will “mysteriously vanish” during the game.)
  3. Make sure each player places a marker on the center free space.
  4. As the bingo caller pulls a calling card from the bowl, players add a marker to the matching picture space.
  5. The first player to match 5 in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) shouts “BINGO!”, wins the game, and probably does a quick happy dance.

All players then clear the game pieces from their boards to play again.

Alternative Bingo Winning Plays

Changing up the winning move from a single straight line is a great way to make this fun Christmas 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

Christmas Bingo Prizes 

Prizes can be as simple as candy canes or other Christmas candy, or something larger, depending on the type of event. Here are some of my favorite prize options for Christmas party games:

For classrooms, anything that would work in a regular prize box will work for a game of Christmas bingo. Try:

FAQs about Christmas Bingo

Like most themed bingo cards, this set uses fewer images than necessary for blackout bingo. Even though all the cards are unique, it is likely that multiple people would call blackout bingo at the same time.

No printer? No problem! Your local print shop is a great option for reasonably inexpensive printing. A medium-weight cardstock is strong enough for multiple uses and thin enough to laminate.

Absolutely, It’s a great activity for a classroom Holiday party! Use as one of several small group activities, or grab a Classroom pack of 30 different bingo game cards. Libraries, scout troops, and other non-profit groups are fine too.
