New Year Bingo For Kids
If you have younger children like I do, you want to make New Year’s Eve special but of course, they are unlikely to stay up until the ball drops at midnight.
This bingo is a great activity that both young kids and the older crowd will enjoy playing together.
In our house, it’s become an event that the whole family enjoys.
Each of the 10 printable New Year’s Eve bingo cards is full of fun images that kids will love.
The 10 unique bingo boards mean that no one will be calling bingo at the same time and they are perfect for large or smaller groups.
There are 25 different images so every one of the game boards will be completely different.
I purposely chose images on the cute side so that they work for all age groups.

Getting Your Game ready
Before the game, print and cut out your free printable New Year’s Eve bingo cards.
You can print them at an office supply store or at home if you have a color printer.
You’ll find the different bingo cards to print at the bottom of this post
Print out the calling cards two times.
For one of the sheets, you’ll want to cut out each image so that you can use them as master images and pull them out of a hat or bowl.
You can then cover the image up on the master sheet that you haven’t cut up.
Setting the game rules
Before the game, make sure to decide how you are going to play.
- Will you set up for a line first? And then move to a “full house” where the whole card has to be filled.
- Can people stay in the game for a second line once they win once?
Give everyone a one of the different bingo game cards.
You’ll want people to have unique cards or else two people will bingo at the same time, which may still happen with all unique cards, but at least it’s not guaranteed to happen.
If you want to use these bingo cards again and again, consider laminating the paper.
If you laminate the paper, you can let the players use bingo markers and then just wipe them clean after each game.
Otherwise you can use different game pieces so that you can use the cards again and again.
Here are some ideas for ways to mark your bingo cards:
- Hershey’s Kisses
- Small toys such as Shopkins
- Mini candies
How To Play
Put all the master images into a party hat.
Pull the images out one at a time.
You can show the players the picture or describe it.
Place the master image on the master list to keep track of what’s been called to verify anyone who bingos.
Everyone covers the matching image on their card.
Repeat, calling out images until someone covered up a whole line either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
You can also offer four corners or a cross for extra bonus prizes.
The first person to get a line shouts “Bingo” and wins a prize.
It can be really fun to change the “Bingo” call out to something like “disco ball” or “fireworks”.
