How To Print The Bingo Cards

animal bingo printable

This animal bingo printable was created so that the cards print in 5 x7  inch size. So, that means that each card will need to be cut before playing.

To download, simply click on the pdf file located at the bottom of this post. The instant download digital file will open in a new window in Adobe Acrobat Reader. 

For best results we highly recommend using the print preview function to make sure that this zoo theme bingo looks right before hitting print.  If the document looks too big or too small simply adjust the printable features so that the scale is set between 90-100%.
