Winter weather means staying inside more, so you may be looking for more indoor games and activities. These printable winter-themed bingo cards will give you a fun activity for those longer winter afternoons.
Bingo is a classic game that gets kids matching and creating lines, and you can use our templates to print your own game at home!
Each template comes with 10 cards and a calling card through a download link at the bottom of this post. There’s one version in black and white and one in full color.
If you want to reuse the cards over and over, we recommend getting some self-laminating sheets so that you can use markers to wipe them off after each game.
Bingo is the perfect game for a class activity, a holiday kiddo party, or just as a print and play indoor activity. We like using them on road trips or even when visiting local family for the holidays!

What You’ll Need:
- Bingo template (available at the bottom of this post)
- Paper or cardstock paper
- Tokens – you can use candy, stickers, little toys, scrap paper, or let them write on the pages!
- Self-laminating paper (optional, but recommended to make the cards reusable)
How to Play Bingo:
- Start by giving each player a different card. They can put one of their tokens on the free space to start. Let the players know if they’re going to try to fill out the entire square or make a row to win.
- Then, the caller can begin by drawing a card from the calling pile and calling it out. Encourage kiddos to mark the item and make sure they’re picking the right one.
- Next, continue calling out the picture shown until someone has five-in-a-row and calls bingo.
- Finally, check their card to see if they did get a bingo and continue to play with the remaining players or start over! You can give candy for prizes, or just play for fun.
Tips and Ideas:
- Going on a road trip? This makes a great game for a car ride!
- You can reuse these sheets again and again! If you’re having children mark on them, consider laminating them and reusing them with a reusable marker.
- Use mini marshmallows as your tokens and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa while playing the game!

We used this Winter Bingo for a little holiday gathering we had for some of the families I work with at a local nonprofit and it was a big hit! The kids had a blast.
