We are all going to be stuck inside a bit more in the coming months. I created this fun printable winter bingo game to give you another option for keeping your little ones occupied during the cold months. Stick around to the end of the post for even more free winter printables!

HOW TO SAVE AND PRINT THE BINGO GAME
I created four different bingo cards for you to use to play bingo with your kids or students. Print the cards one to a page (8.5 x 11). There are also two sheets worth of bingo calling tiles.
Start by saving the PDF file. Then load up your color printer with heavy printer paper or cardstock and print the PDFs on the highest quality print settings. I recommend using heavyweight paper or cardstock for this project, especially for the tiles, so that the pieces stand up to handling without ripping or creasing.
Using a pair of scissors or a paper trimmer, cut the bingo tiles apart into 2″ x 2″ squares. If you have chosen to print the half-page bingo cards, you will need to cut those in half as well.
If you plan to keep this game to be used year after year, I highly recommend laminating the cards and tiles after you cut them out.
HOW TO PLAY WINTER BINGO
Your Bingo game is ready to play! Hand out the bingo cards and place all of the bingo tiles into a hat (or bowl or mitten…).
The bingo caller should pull out one tile at a time and show it to the players. Since this is a picture-based bingo game, it is can even be played by young kids who haven’t mastered reading yet.
Players should then cover the corresponding image on their cards with a token. You can use small scraps of paper, pieces of candy or cereal, stickers, or plastic chips.
Keep pulling tiles until a player gets five in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. This is called a bingo, and it wins the game. When a player has a bingo, have them shout out BINGO! or to let everyone know they have won. The caller can then decide whether all players should clear the board to start a new game or keep playing the round with the remaining players.
