Setting Up for July 4th Bingo

Before your party, you’ll need to prepare your Bingo Game. It won’t take long, but it’s easier to just have it ready when you are.

Download and print the free printable bingo cards and calling card page. The bingo cards are designed 2 per US letter size page to save paper and printing costs. If you don’t have a home printer, office supply stores or a local print shop can print them for you.

For best results when printing, I prefer mid-weight white cardstock. It’s also more durable than standard printer paper, so you can play longer. Printer paper will also work, but expect the game cards 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 also get the job done.

You’ll need something to use as bingo markers (think inexpensive, small items like red, white, and blue m&m’s, pennies, or punched paper stars.)

*tip: laminating the bingo sheets using either a laminating machine or self-laminating envelopes will allow reusing the cards through the whole month of July, 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.

How to Play Patriotic Bingo

Most people have played traditional bingo with letters and numbers. This themed bingo matches pictures instead. Reviewing the rules is always a good idea, to avoid confusion and make sure everyone is on the same page.

To play July 4th Bingo:

  1. Pass out bingo boards 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 person to match 5 in a straight line (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) shouts “BINGO!” and wins the game

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 Thanksgiving 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
