Printable Bingo Cards
These free bingo cards are a great way of keeping a group of children of all ages entertained. Because they are images, even young children can take part as they don't need to be able to read.

You could also print them out and laminate them for use at home, that way they could be re-used again and again. A fun game of bingo is the perfect rainy day activity or equally fun at a birthday party or special occasion, it is really very versatile.
Summer Bingo Instructions
This is a fun bingo game which is lovely easy game to play with children of any age. These kids bingo cards have pictures instead of words so even young children can join in.
Simply print out different bingo cards for each player. There are 50 different ones included in this download so you should get plenty of uses out of this game. Of course you can use the same card twice, just not in the same game. Every player should have their own bingo cards.
One person will be the bingo caller. They have a copy of the printable call card and will call out each picture at random, making sure to call out each image only once. Tick the images off as you go so you don’t repeat one.
As the caller calls the images, the players need to mark them off their player cards. You can use buttons, counters, a pencil or a bingo markers, it’s up to you. The first player to get a full line either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally calls out LINE. Play stops while the caller checks to see if the player is correct by matching the images checked off their calling card against the ones marked on the player card. You can have a small prize for the first player to get a line.
Play continues until a player gets a full house - all the images ticked off their card. The player shouts HOUSE and they win the game. It's a great game with easy rules and is easy for children to understand.
