Here’s a fun game for your Easter celebrations at home or in the classroom.
This bingo game printable is perfect for playing with small groups of young children.
There’s also a blank and white version included because I know how expensive ink can be!
Did you know that playing bingo games in the classroom supports the development of listening skills, self-regulation, and visual discrimination?
Yep, plenty of learning and fun to be had with bingo!
Recruit an adult or older child to supervise this small group game for Easter learning and fun.
I prefer to play bingo with small groups of children because managing the game with a whole class can be challenging. Playing with small groups is more cost effective because you don’t use as much ink printing mats and you don’t have to buy as many manipulatives.
Printable Easter Bingo Game
Bingo is a great way to introduce children to the concept of playing games because there are few rules and each player has his or her own game board.

For the color version, print the bingo mats on cardstock first, cut out the mats, and then laminate for durability.
Supplies Needed for Easter Bingo Game (Black and White)

Easter Bingo Game
First, give one Easter bingo mat to each child in your small group.
Then, place a bowl or basket of your chosen manipulatives in the center of the table so all the children can easily reach them. I used Easter chocolate kisses but you can use whatever best meets your needs.
For the black and white version, give crayons or one Do-a-Dot marker to each child. Do-a-Dot markers are very fun and engaging for young children, they just love using these little paint filled markers to search for pictures on their bingo mat!
Next, demonstrate how to listen to the bingo caller, then search for an image on your bingo mat and cover with a kiss or mark if the image is found. You may need to demonstrate this process for your children a few times to ensure success.
Finally, start playing and let the fun begin!
