Over a year ago I released the fun Movie Night Digital Scrapbook Kit and my wonderful friend, Mint team member and hybrid crafting wizard Mary Jo Johnston came up the most ADORABLE project using it – Movie Night Bingo!
We posted her amazing project on the blog with instructions on how to make them but since then (and for some reason specifically in the last few weeks) I’ve been getting a ton of requests from you guys wanting to purchase the Bingo Cards as printables.
So we took her original cards and bumped them up a notch and I’m so excited to share with you that they are now available for you as a quick print-ready project.
Your kids will love playing Movie Night Bingo!
- 10 different BINGO cards (print as many as needed)
- 120 Calling Squares (prints on three 8.5×11″ sheets)
- 1″ Round Card Markers (print as many as needed)
- Game Play Instructions
- Printing Instructions
All files are included as print-ready PDF files. Just download and print! I’ve included a full sheet of round red markers sized for a 1″ paper punch if you have one. Alternatively, you could use pennies, M&M’s, Hershey Kisses, foam shapes or anything else you can think of to cover the called spaces.
HOW TO PLAY:
I think most people are familiar with Bingo but just in case you need a refresher, here’s the short version. Someone is designated as the caller. This person pulls the calling squares from a bag or a box and calls them out to the players who then look to see if they have the letter/symbol called on their card. Called letter/symbols are covered up with a marker. The goal is to complete one of the winning patterns shown below.
Before play begins, decide if you will play only until a player gets a line, a t-shape, a border or a blackout. You could have multiple prizes on hand for each of the 4 win patterns and continue play of the same game until all 4 patterns are achieved. For example, BINGO is called when a player gets a line. Play then continues for all players using the same cards and the goal is now to get the t-shape. Then play continues until someone gets the border. Another option is to start new games with a single designated winning pattern set for each game. For example, in this game players must get a blackout to win. Getting a line or t-shape would not win at all in this particular game.
Small prizes can be given for each win pattern or maybe the winner’s prize is his or her choice of movie.
Movie Night Bingo is great for:
- Rainy Days
- Family Game Night
- Movie Themed Birthday Parties
- Sleepover Parties
- Oscar Night
- Just Because
Fire up that printer, pop some buttery popcorn, plan a fun movie night and play a little BINGO!
