Easter Bingo Cards
Easter gatherings in my family involve dozens of people ranging in age from just a few months to 80 years old. We have a tradition of playing after-dinner Easter bingo to keep the children busy while the adults clean up. The kids think it is a fun game that allows them to yell out “bingo!” and win prizes for finding words.
Teachers know that bingo is a great Easter activity for the classroom because it builds reading skills, works well for a group of children, and is simple to play. (No clean-up like with fingerpainting!) Whether you want to use them for family gatherings or in the classroom, I think you’ll want to try out some free printable Easter bingo cards.
There are 8 cards, printed 4 to a sheet (to save paper) that look like this:

These are in PDF format. It is very likely that your computer can already read this format without any trouble. (If it has trouble, you’ll need to update your computer with a free download of Adobe Acrobat Reader)
Just print, cut (or have the kids break out the safety scissors to do some work) and play.
How To Play Easter Bingo
Step 1 – Everyone marks off their Free Space. (You can use any number of things as markers. My aunt, who plays bingo with her friends, uses a big green marker. Easter stickers are a hit with the kids. Small candies work well as markers so long as everyone agrees not to eat the pieces until after the final round of Easter bingo is finished!)
Step 2 – One person randomly calls out words from the the card. As each word is called out, players mark the word on their cards.
Step 3 – When a player fills up a row, diagonal, or column, they shout “bingo!” Once the person who called out the words confirms that all the marked words were called, the player is declared a winner. There is no rule that says Easter bingo is restricted to having just one winner. Feel free to keep playing for mulitiple winners or until the prizes run out!
