Holiday Bingo


An easy game for all ages to play, and most everyone knows the rules so there isn’t a lot of necessary explanation required.

  1. Print the BINGO CARD onto paper.

  2. Either write in Christmas words or have guests fill in their own. Click on BINGO WORDS for some grouped ideas to get you started.

  3. Cut small strips of paper and write individual words on each strip.

  4. Fold the strips and toss them in a Santa hat.

  5. One person is the caller and randomly pulls strips out of the hat.

  6. Each player marks the words called and the first to announce a bingo is the winner!


  1. Have guests mark “called” squares with holiday candies such as red and green M&Ms.

  2. Give out small prizes for winners.

  3. Change it up and don’t just do straight lines for bingos. Have people use an H shape, L, picture frame, whole card, etc. as a way to keep the interest of your guests.
