How to Make a Christmas Bingo Game


Christmas bingo games can be fun to play at school parties as well as during family get-togethers at home. To make the bingo game special for Christmas, you can print the bingo cards on colored paper or paper with printed holiday or winter themed borders. You can also use holiday clip art in each space or around the edges. Printing plain bingo cards and decorating them with Christmas stickers or rubber stamps can also be fun.

Step 1

Create a new document in a word processor or desktop publishing program. In the "Page Setup" box, set the margins and paper orientation. To fit two bingo cards on a sheet, use landscape orientation and create two columns.

Step 2

Insert a table (or one table in each column) with 6 rows and 5 columns, or use a custom size for your bingo cards.

Step 3

Pick your favorite font or a seasonal font such as Frosty and set it to a large size. In the top row of the table, type the letters "BINGO" or Christmas themed 5-letter word, such as JESUS, GIFTS, ANGEL, COCOA, SNOWY or PARTY.

Step 4

Type the word "Free" in the center square of the table, or use a special picture for the free space.

Step 5

Place a Christmas clip art picture in each space, or decorate the borders of the bingo card and use regular numbers in each space. For a more challenging game, you can also use Christmas themed words, phrases or even bits of song lyrics.

Step 6

Save the bingo card, then print it out on colored paper. Cut the paper in half, if you put two cards on one sheet.

Step 7

Click "Save As" to create another bingo card with the same layout. Use a different combination of pictures, numbers or words for this bingo card, to make them all unique. Create and print enough bingo cards for all the players.

Step 8

Make calling cards by creating a page with all the pictures, numbers or words. Then print the page and cut apart the calling cards.
