Download these 10 free printable winter bingo cards with matching bingo calling cards to celebrate the winter season with a fun game… even once the holidays are over!
If you’re looking for a fun winter themed bingo game to play during these long cold days- this is for you! Today I’m sharing a winter bingo free printable set for you to download and play with your class, your kids, or… well, whoever you’re spending these winter days with!
This This bingo set has 10 different bingo cards so if you’re playing with small groups, everyone can have their own bingo card but if you’re playing with more than 10, you’ll just need to re-use cards.
My kids are such a fan of bingo. Whether we’re playing with cousins, grandparents or just by ourselves, they’re always down to play new bingo games. I really love that bingo is a game that even really small kids understand how to play so if you have a group of kids that range in ages- this is the perfect activity to get everyone involved!
Today I’m excited to share a winter themed set of free printable bingo cards with you… and I can’t wait to play with my kiddos this weekend! We’ll be cozying up with some hot chocolate and probably using mini marshmallows as our dot markers.
My only regret is that I didn’t have these winter bingo mats ready before the holidays when we were short on snow days, this would have been a great way to keep them busy indoors over winter break… and it’s a perfect game for quality time no matter the age of kids.
The kids worked with me to brainstorm winter theme items like a snow shovel, hockey stick, pair of mittens, cup of hot cocoa, snowflakes and other winter time fun pictures for me to draw for these bingo boards.
This printable is part of a collaboration that I’m doing with some of my favourite printable designer friends, so you can scroll to the bottom and find even more winter themed printables from some very talented ladies!
But first… let’s get you these winter bingo cards + calling cards!

What’s the best way to print free printables
You can print free printables any way you like, but I have a couple suggestions to make the most of them! While every free printable is different, these ones are simple 8.5×11″ PDF documents which makes them incredibly easy to print at home or at your local print shop. They will print just like a document, without special settings like a photo.
While I like to print most printables on cardstock, this printable bingo set is actually very well suited for regular old paper.
I’ve designed this bingo as a mostly white version so you can save on printer ink. The only color is in the ‘winter bingo’ hand lettered title, but it would be easy to print in just black and white if you prefer! Then… just get kiddos to color in the bingo cards before the game!
Depending what you’re planning to use them for… laminate to help them last even longer! If you are going to do this, you could give kids washable markers to color right on them. They’ll wipe clean like dry erase markers!
How to Play Winter Bingo
Bingo is such an easy game for even young kids to play along. My 1st grade son really loves to play and has been playing along with his older siblings for a few years now. Just print off a bingo card or bingo board for each player and print off one of the calling card pages to cut into cards.
You can let the kids colour all of the winter drawings as an independent work activity before the game starts or let them colour them in as the items are called.
Shuffle the calling cards and flip one at a time, calling out the winter themed item. Players will use bingo chips or markers to mark which of their spaces has been called on their own board.
For this winter themed bingo, it would be so much fun to fill in the game boards with small white pom poms or even mini marshmallows instead of traditional bingo markers! If you’re doing this at home, the mini marshmallows pair perfectly with hot cocoa 😉
You might already have these on hand making it a great low prep activity for the next cold winter day you find yourself stuck inside looking for easy indoor activities.
The bingo caller will continue to flip cards until someone shouts ‘bingo’! A bingo is a line of marked off spaces either horizontally, vertically or on diagonal (corner to corner). The first person to get a ‘bingo’ is the winner! You can mix things up and play until you get a couple lines, an X or even a blackout (all squares are covered) if you like!
There’s a total of 25 different illustrations on these bingo cards, all with a winter theme. Since there’s a free space in the middle, that means there’s one ‘item’ missing from each card. While the calling cards do have the written word for each of the illustrations, the printable games cards just have the picture making it easy for young children to play along. If you’re making lesson plans around winter activities, you could also use the calling pieces with the written words as flash cards.
The items included in this winter themed bingo are:
- Snow Fort
- Evergreen (tree)
- Snow Shovel
- Snow Pants
- Holiday Lights
- Snowy Mountains
- Clouds in the Sky
- Snow Flakes
- Hot Drink
I tried to choose items that kids could actually find. For us, that would be around the house over winter break, but if you had a winter break day camp you could probably find most of these things too!
If you were trying to get kids outside over the winter holidays, you could send them with a bingo card on a ‘scavenger hunt’ to find as many items as they could- hot cocoa as the reward when you get a bingo!
Whether you’re a teacher working on their lesson plan for this tail end of winter or looking for a great idea to entertain little ones on a long winter road trip- I hope you so enjoy these bingo printables!
