How to Set-Up a Back to School Bingo Game

First print off the calling card and bingo cards (link to the free printable below).

  1. Cut out the calling cards and place them in a bowl or jar for selecting.
  2. Cut out the bingo cards. Each player gets a bingo card. If you have more than 10 players you can put kids into small groups to play together.
  3. Use candy or non-candy items as markers. When the image is called out, the player puts a marker on that image.
  4. When calling out the images – you can describe the image or show the picture.
  5. You can play for a line (5 in a row) or a full card. The first person to get a line says “Bingo!”. You can keep playing afterwards for more lines if you have more prizes to give out. There are 30 calling cards to choose from so a full card may result in having a few people winning at the same time depending on the number of players. We recommend playing mostly for lines because of this. Mix up the cards and start a new game after a few lines have been won.

How Can I Play With More People?

There are 10 unique cards included. If you have more than 10 players you can break them up into small groups and play in groups of 2-3 players. You can also hand out similar cards and have more than one winner at a time.

How to Print the Bingo Cards

Make sure you review the Print Preview before printing. Every printer is different so make sure you select “Print to Fit to Size” or look at the printer Scale Features (you can print at 90% scale) in your printer settings so that it does not print cut off if you are having issues.
