Bingo is one of those great games that doesn’t require a ton of thought, that you can play during a casual afternoon while you sit and chat. We love it for family gatherings.

The game is easy enough for most elementary-aged kids to set up and play on their own using the provided instructions. Plus no reading is necessary, so the youngest players don’t need extra help to join in.

Free Printable Winter Bingo Cards

They’re a great option for classroom winter holiday parties, to keep the kids busy over winter break, or scout group activities. But they’re not just for young children! Bingo is also a fun winter party game for adults or senior center activity.

There are 6 unique cards in the free download, perfect for family game night or small groups needing a fun winter activity. Larger sets of up to 50 different cards are available in my online store for class parties and other large groups.

We like to store the game together in a large zipper bag with our other bingo games so we can easily play a fun game any time.

Setting Up the Free Printable Game

I highly recommend prepping your Winter Bingo Game in advance. It won’t take long, but it’s easier to just take out the game when you’re ready to play.

First, download and print the free winter printable cards 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 regular printer paper. Printer paper will also work, but expect them to last only one day of use.

You can download the free printable file near the bottom of this post.

Cut apart the winter bingo game boards and calling cards. It’s quick and easy using a paper trimmer, but scissors will work too.

You’ll need something to use as bingo markers (think inexpensive, small items like peppermint candies, punched paper snowflakes or circles, or mini marshmallows.) If you’re planning a single game and don’t want to reuse the bingo boards, you could use dot markers or stickers.

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

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

How to Play Winter Bingo

Most people have played a game of traditional bingo before.  But reviewing the rules is always a good idea, to avoid confusion and make sure everyone knows the house rules.

To play Winter 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 likely get eaten during the game.)
  3. Each player starts with a bingo marker on the center free space.
  4. As the bingo caller pulls a calling card from the bowl, players add a marker to the picture space that matches.
  5. The first person to match 5 in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) shouts “BINGO!” and wins the game. Happy dance optional!

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 Winter 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

Winter Bingo Prizes 

Everyone loves prizes! They make winning a little more exciting, and increase the friendly competition of the game. Prizes can be as big or as small as you like, depending on the age of your players and the number of games.

Some of my favorite larger winter bingo prizes:

For classrooms or everyday home playing, anything that would work in a regular prize box will work. Try:

No. Like most themed bingo games, 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.
