Christmas Bingo

How to play:

Enjoy a fun game of bingo with friends and family with these festive Christmas themed cards. One person is assigned the role of the caller. This person will not need to have a bingo card this round. The caller should first shuffle the stack of calling cards before starting the game.

Hand out a bingo card to each player. Everyone should also have a pile of some kind of chip or marker to place onto their board as the Christmas themed items are called out.

The first person to get five in a row, wins!

Christmas scattergories

How to play:

First, cut apart the letters on the instruction sheet and place into a hat or small bowl. Have someone close their eyes and pick out a letter.

Set a timer for 3 minutes. If you are playing with younger children, you may want to set the timer for a little bit longer.

Using the categories card provided, each player will fill in answers that start with the previously selected letter. This set includes categories cards for 2 rounds of the game.

Write down as many answers as you can before the time runs out. If you get stuck on one, feel free to skip and return back to it later if time allows.

Try and come up with most unique answers that you can think of. For example if the letter chosen is “S,” for “An item of winter clothing,” you may want to write down “Ski Pants” instead of “Scarf,” since it is a less common item of winter clothing that you generally hear about.

When the timer runs out, go around the room and compare answers with the other players. If someone has the same answer as you, you both must cross it off your list. Whoever has the most unique answers at the end of the game wins!
