The players should choose and cut out 24 pictures and glue them onto the squares on the game card. They should not glue a picture into the center square; instead, they should write the word FREE in it.
You should also cut up a set of the pictures for the caller to use. Place these in a large cup or bowl. Also cut up a couple of piece of paper into small squares so the payers can use these to cover the pictures on their game board as they are called out. Using red and green paper is fun since they are Christmas colors.
How to Play the Bingo GameOnce everyone has made their game cards, you are ready to play bingo. The caller starts out by closing their eyes and choosing one picture from the cup or bowl. He or she then tells the players what it is and holds it up for everyone to see.
When a picture is drawn, the players should look at their bingo cards carefully. If they have that picture, they need to cover it using a small square of paper.
The caller should pull pictures out of the cup or bowl until someone covers 5 pictures in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. When someone gets 5 in a row, they should yell out BINGO. The caller should then check that players card to make sure they covered the right pictures. If all of the pictures have been called, that player gets a prize.
