Car Bingo
We have several kinds to choose from below.

Suggestions and Tips:

  • You can print them (color is best), then cut them out and have them laminated at Kinko's. You can then use crayons or overhead erasable markers, then wipe them off for a new game, OR
  • Print them out and use cut-up 'Post-It' paper to mark off your squares.
  • Print them and cross out the picture when it is selected (non re-usable method)

Picture Car Bingo
You can play different types of BINGO with each set of cards.

  • 5x5 Picture Bingo - The kids look for the items on their card. When they find one, they can call it out (i.e. "Pickup Truck!"). Then everyone who has a pickup truck can cover it. BINGO is called out by the winner when they get 5 in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal).

  • 4x4 Picture Bingo - Slightly quicker/easier then the game above. The kids look for the items on their card. When they find one, they can call it out (i.e. "Stop sign!"). Then everyone who has a Stop Sign can cover it. BINGO is called out by the winner when they get 4 in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal). You can also go for a 'blackout', which is when all of the spaces are covered.

  • 5x5 Letter Bingo - This is Fun! Have the kids look for things that START with the letter on their card. Call it out when they get it (i.e. C is for CAR!). Everyone can then cover the 'C'. The winner is the first to get 5 in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal).

    • A variation on this is to find the actual letter on a sign. Only 1 letter per sign is allowed, so the first to call out the letter gets to use the letter they call out (i.e. "T in EXIT on that exit sign!"). Then everyone covers that letter.
