I had grand decorating plans over the weekend, but our weekend was so full we couldn’t cram anymore anything into it. We spent Friday afternoon at a local farm that has a couple corn mazes, pumpkin patches, a small petting zoo and some fun rides. It was a blast and always is. Definitely a great way to spend the afternoon. But all that fun left me no time to decorate. But, it did leave me with time to create a printable game! We love to play games around here and this Halloween Bingo has been a hit all weekend. I love simple projects like this.
HALLOWEEN BINGO PRINTABLE GAME
– Halloween Bingo Boards Click HERE to Download
– Board Markers – I let my kids use candy pieces a couple times
– Laminator and laminating pouches – optional
– Halloween-themed scrapbook paper – optional
– Glue stick – optional
– Print the Halloween bingo game boards from the link above. It’s a single PDF file, so there’s only one file to download. There are five different game board layouts. You will need one extra board than you have players. You’ll use one board to create the draw pile pieces.
– If you are going to use the scrapbook paper to line the back of your Halloween Bingo draw pile pieces, use the glue stick to glue the extra game board and the scrapbook paper together. Place the papers back to back and glue.
– Cut apart the squares on the extra board you printed. If you’re not going to laminate your boards, you are now ready to play. I chose to laminate the boards for one reason: so my kids could use dry erase markers to mark off their boards and I didn’t have to supply candy or other markers every time they wanted to play. It’s a bonus that the boards are a little more protected too.
– Turn on your laminator and let it warm up. Place each board inside a laminating pouch, centering it in the pouch. Place the draw pile pieces, one at a time and not touching, inside a laminating pouch. Be sure there is enough space between each piece for the pouch to seal and stay sealed once you cut the pieces apart.
– Run the pages through the laminator, one at a time. Let cool to the touch.
– Cut the draw pile pieces apart.
That’s it! You’re now ready to play Halloween Bingo! A fun and simple game. Little J was having a great time drawing a card and matching it to the boards. Of course, he liked the version with candy better, but who wouldn’t? That boy definitely got my sweet tooth.
