Free Printable Bingo Cards for Kids and Adults | Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day and more!

Updated on September 5, 2014

Use free printable bingo games for kids to teach new words, spelling and foreign languages

Along with Memory, Bingo is one of the games I use most frequently with the nursery school kids in my ESL class.

Why is Bingo so great? Well, it is appropriate for any age group, from children as young as three to adults as old as 100. It can be played using any set of pictures, numbers or words, depending on the skill you are trying to teach. It forces you to recall new words, and correlate the sound of these words with the images on the bingo card. And most importantly, it is a whole lot of a good old-fashioned fun.

On this page, not only will you find the Bingo cards I created for my nursery school kids last year, but you will also find a number of links to other excellent free printable Bingo cards for kids online. With these cards, you should have no trouble teaching new vocabulary. In fact, the kids in your class will be having so much fun that they won't even realise they're learning!

As a teacher and an artist, the best part about Bingo for me is the creation of the Bingo cards! I often draw my own images onto blank Bingo cards such as the one I have provided for you here, either using computer graphics or by hand. If you'd like to try making your own blank Bingo cards, just open up MS Word or a similar program, create a chart that is 6 x 6 cells, and fill in the blanks with your own images. It's a lot of fun - I can guarantee it!

This free printable bingo game for kids deals with common food items we eat on a daily basis. The cards have been designed in black and white so children may colour the images before or after playing the game if they wish. Each of the six cards provided features the same food items placed in a different order. If you have more than six players, you can print out more than one of the same card. The child who is able to create a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line first wins the game.

Baby Shower Bingo

Free Printable Baby Shower Bingo Cards - Baby bingo! Printable games to download for your baby shower.

One of the most popular games for baby showers is Baby Shower Bingo. Baby Shower Bingo works a little differently from ordinary bingo in that each person must fill in the card on his or her own with items from the baby registry list. As the mother-to-be opens her presents, guests mark off the gifts present on their cards. The first person to get a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line wins the game, and perhaps a prize if the mother-to-be has prepared one!

Here I have prepared a free printable Baby Shower Bingo card you can download and distribute to the guests at the baby shower you are organising. Make sure you prepare a list beforehand of all the gifts that have been purchased. This way, your guests can go through the list and fill in their bingo card accordingly. The spaces that are already filled with pictures of baby-related items are "free" spaces.

Are you a teacher looking for a good game for your class? Perhaps you want to keep the kids busy at a birthday party? Whatever the reason, please let us know why you've decided to go for Bingo!

Why do you need free bingo cards to print? - We'd love to hear from you!
