How to Play Travel Bingo
This version of travel bingo is a super simple card matching game, that can be enjoyed by kids of all ages, even toddlers from age 2 years and upwards can play and enjoy this game with a little help.
Each player first chooses one Bingo board.
Next, put all of the calling cards face down in the middle of the playing area OR give the stack of calling cards to another player who wants to be the Bingo caller.
Either – each player takes turns to lift a card and see if they have it on their board, if so place it down to fill up the pictures on their board. OR – the Bingo caller shows the card and every player who has this picture can mark it off on their board.
You can either race to fill up your entire boards, OR race to get a straight line three in a row – either horizontal, vertical or diagonal.
If playing with a Bingo caller and marking on the board, you may like to laminate the bingo boards so you can circle pictures and then wipe off afterwards to use again and again. You can also use bingo chips to note your pictures on the boards if preferred.
With the matching card version, you can also re-use it as many times as you like as no marking on the boards is required.
How to Prepare the Printable Game
As mentioned, you can laminate the pieces for longer lasting use. You may also want to check out re-usable wipe clean wallets from Learning Resources (these are available on Amazon) which are an easier alternative than laminating, if you don’t have laminating supplies to hand. These wallets are great, you can easily switch out the printables inside – they are genius and a great buy!
If you don’t want to use the wallets, another great option is to print on cardstock instead of paper so the thickness gives the pieces a little more durability.
You can also print on regular printer paper and then glue down onto cardboard for example left over cereal boxes and packets work great, and is a brilliant way to re-use and recycle.
TIP: Print two copies of the calling cards and you can also create a simple matching pairs game.
