Christmas Bingo

Add some festive fun to your Christmas celebration with our printable holiday games! We've got play tips and free Christmas Bingo printables below!

Whether you're playing with a classroom full of kids, with some friends over Christmas cocktails or with the family after the big holiday feast, Bingo is a fun Christmas party game for any group.

In traditional bingo, each player takes a card with a five by five grid. The word "BINGO" is displayed on the top with numbers underneath it. Someone moderates the game and calls out the number and letter combination until someone wins by getting a Bingo.


Free Custom Christmas Bingo Printables

We designed some Christmas Bingo boards along with some of our other printable Christmas games with help from the creative team over at Frog Prince Paperie to revise this popular game for the holidays.



There's this bright board - the kids will love this Bingo design especially! But we couldn't decide between green and red, so we made this one, too!



Play four festive rounds of Bingo with these custom Bingo cards. But don't forget your Bingo markers, decked for the season, too, of course!

Play with a Festive Spin

The game is played in the traditional way with one person serving as the moderator, but you can still add some Christmas twists into the mix.

One way to put a unique spin on the classic version is to have players shout Merry Christmas when they have a Bingo.

Another festive take: in order to have a winning card, try to create a tree with the Bingo markers. To do this, the entire 3rd column should be covered and the second and fourth columns should have three middle spaces covered to resemble branches.


Make Your Own Bingo Boards

If you want to make your own boards, consider using one of these holiday symbols or characters:

Candy canes
Hot chocolate
Christmas tree
North pole
Jingle bells
Gingerbread man
Christmas cookies


Keep the word BINGO at top or substitute a holiday-themed word, such as "CLAUS." If you're using words versus images, watch out for the double letters (i.e. the "A" in "Santa" or "Claus").
