- Cardstock – I love printing my bingo cards on thick 110lb cardstock instead of regular printer paper. It makes the cards feel more special and luxurious when you hold them.
- Color Printer – You can use a home printer to print these bingo cards. If you don’t have one, you can send the file to your local print shop instead. Alternatively, check out your local library, as they often provide simple printing services like this at a low cost.
- Laminator (optional) – I didn’t do this, but if you want to print these cards once and get use of them for years to come, use a laminator to laminate the cards! This protective layer will help preserve their quality over time. Once laminated, you can conveniently mark off your bingo cards using dry erase markers, offering the flexibility to reuse them. Alternatively, you can use candy like we did to mark off each box.
- Scissors or paper cutter – Each bingo card fits on a single piece of paper, ensuring easy printing. However, you’ll need either scissors or a paper cutter to carefully cut out the calling card boxes into small, individual pieces. These cut-out boxes can then be placed in a hat or container, ready to be randomly drawn to call off each item during the game.
- 4th of July M&Ms, marshmallows, or other candies – You’ll need some type of small candy to mark off the boxes. Some of my favorites are red, white and blue M&Ms, mini marshmallows, Skittles, Starbursts, Jelly Beans, or even small patriotic-themed chocolates or gummies that you can often find seasonally. If you don’t mind using these bingo cards only once, an alternative option is to use a marker or pen for marking them.
How to Play 4th of July Bingo
4th of July bingo is very easy to play and this free printable makes it so simple to do! Follow these steps (there are more detailed steps in the how-to card) so that you can play this fun activity with your family this 4th of July!
- Print the bingo cards and 2 copies of the calling card on cardstock using a color
- printer. Ensure that the “fit” option is selected in your printing settings to avoid any cut-off parts when printed.
- If desired, laminate the bingo cards for extra durability and repeated future use.
- Cut out each square of one calling card using scissors or a paper cutter. Place them in a festive bowl or hat (like Uncle Sam’s hat!). Leave the other calling card uncut to use as the reference calling card.
- Distribute the bingo cards to the participants along with a handful of bingo markers, such as patriotic M&Ms, mini marshmallows, candies, or even coins. Instruct participants to mark off the free space in the center of their cards.
- Take turns drawing a square from the festive hat or bowl and announce the picture on it. If a player has that picture on their card, they should mark it with a candy. Also mark off the reference calling card with a marker to ensure you have a full list of which pictures have been called.
- When a player completes a row, column, or diagonal with five marked squares, they should shout “BINGO!”
- You can either end the game there or continue playing to award 2nd and 3rd place prizes as well.
