The holidays are all about gathering with family and friends, eating, drinking, sharing stories, and enjoying one another's company.
While all of that can certainly be entertainment enough, occasionally you might find yourself with a lull in conversation or with an hour or two to spare between nap number one and happy hour. When that occurs, we've learned that the perfect thing to fill those gaps is a good old-fashioned game like this version of Holiday Bingo. Plus it's a great activity for adults and kids alike.
So the next time the kids remark that they're bored or you need a way to distract your siblings from arguing over who was the better child (again), simply declare yourself the Master of Holiday Entertainment, get out the Buffalo Wings & Rings starters and wings, and start passing out bingo cards. Add to the fun by bringing along small prizes for the winners.
How Does Holiday Bingo Work?
Plan ahead and print off enough copies for everyone who will be at your gathering (more if you plan to play more than once). Be sure to bring writing instruments or have some available to you to mark off each square as you play. You can print these at home using standard printer paper or use card stock and a color printer to make them a little more sturdy and festive.
Directions: Pass out a bingo card to all participants as well as a writing tool. For this game of bingo, there's no need to stay put. Instead keep your card and pen with you throughout the afternoon or a set time period and simply mark your square every time one of the words on the Bingo card is mentioned.
Set up what kind of game you're playing at the start. Whether you choose a straight line, diagonal, a coverall, or four corners, we promise you'll have lots of fun trying to "catch" the words being uttered in regular conversation.
The first person to mark off all squares in the designated game wins!
