Olympic Bingo Cards
Difficulty: Very Easy
Celebrate the Olympics with a modified version of this age-old favorite game. These Olympic bingo cards can be printed off for any number of children. We've included three cards pre-printed with numbers.
Use the fourth card with blank boxes to create additional game boards. Be sure to check back for Bingo cards for holidays too! Don't forget the prizes!
Note: In our version of a bingo game you do not call off the letters. Print the numbers sheet below and only call the numbers. The same numbers sheet can be used with any of our bingo games.
What you'll need:
- Printer paper or cardstock
- Printable bingo cards (see below)
- Miniature Sea Shells, shell macaroni, candies, or other markers (see tips for ideas)
- Con-Tact paper or laminate, optional
- Cardboard, optional
- Glue, optional
How to make it:
- Print out our Olympic bingo cards - card one, card two, card three and card four.
- Print out multiple pages of card four if you have more than four players in the game.
- Card four has blank boxes so you can customize additional game boards. Choose numbers in the following ranges: For "G" column: 1-15, "A" column: 16-30, "M" column: 31-45, "E" column: 46-60, "S" column: 61-75.
- Be sure to print off enough playing cards for each child to have one.
- If desired, cover with Con-Tact paper or laminate to be able to reuse the cards again next year.
- Print a page of bingo numbers. HINT: Print off on cardstock or glue to cardboard to give the numbers stability.
- Cut the numbers apart on the lines.
- Place the numbers in a bowl.
- Give each child a bingo card and a handful of markers (see tips below).
- Reach into the bowl, call out a number and the children place a marker on the number if it appears on their card.
- Play the game just like regular bingo. Play for five in a row across, down, diagonally, or even play blackout by covering all the numbers on the card. Have fun!
- Number markers can be candy, punched circles from cardstock, flat buttons, or any small item that you have a multitude of! If you are only going to use the cards once, use sports-themed stickers to cover the numbers as the numbers are called.
- Little country flags, ribbons, and fake medals would be cute to use to decorate the tables for an Olympic Bingo party.
- If you have a Mac, please choose "shrink pages to fit" option. Note: All computers and printers handle printing from the internet differently.
