Unlike traditional bingo that is played with numbers or images, our Christmas lights bingo printable is a festive party game that is played by spotting various Christmas lights and Christmas decorations while on a walk around the neighborhood.

To play the game, simply print out as many copies of our free Christmas lights bingo printable cards as you need (one bingo sheet for each player). 

Then, when you’re ready to play, have your party guests bundle up and head outside for a decoration and Christmas light scavenger hunt in your neighborhood.

For example, when you see a north pole sign, a Mrs Claus decoration or a gingerbread boy you check it off your bingo card. First person to get a line Bingos!

Players can use a pencil, pen, marker or bingo daubers to check off each item as they find it on their bingo board while they are out walking. The first person to get a line on their card and shout “Bingo!” is the winner.

You can reward winners with a small prize (see some of our favorite prize suggestions below) or simply let them enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that they won!

Either way, this Christmas lights scavenger hunt printable game is sure to be a big hit with party guests of all ages.

Tips for Playing Christmas Lights Bingo

Here are a few tips to make playing Christmas lights bingo even more fun:

Make it a team effort

To make things more festive and encourage a little friendly competition, consider splitting your party guests into teams. This is a great way to get everyone involved and make the game even more fun.

Play more than one round

To keep the game going and add a little extra fun, you can play multiple rounds by giving players a new and different bingo cards after each round. This way everyone has a chance to win and everyone gets to see even more decorations! (Scroll down to see some alternate bingo card suggestions).

Give a prize

Make things even more fun by giving out prizes for the winners of each round. Small toys, gift cards or Christmas candy are all great prize options. (Scroll down to see a list of our favorite prize ideas)

Provide snacks

No party is complete without snacks! Bring along some Christmas cookies or other holiday treats to keep your party guests fueled up and ready to play. Or, plan to serve up some hot chocolate and Christmas goodies when you get back home from playing Christmas lights bingo.

Recommended Supplies

Playing Christmas lights bingo is simple and only requires a few basic supplies:

  1. Our free free printable Christmas bingo cards. Plan to print at least one bingo card template per player or multiple sheets if you plan to play multiple rounds.
  2. A pencil, pen or other writing utensil for each player to check of the items as they find them (or Christmas bingo daubers if you want to get really festive!)
  3. Clip boards or something similar to help players keep hold cards while they are walking around
  4. Glow sticks come in handy to help players spot each other if you are playing at night. If children are playing we highly suggest glow sticks so you easily spot and keep track of them!
  5. Christmas music is optional but one of the fun ways you can instantly boost the holiday spirit. Create a holiday playlist and bring a small portable Bluetooth speaker to listen to music while you play.
  6. Small prizes for the winners (an optional extra cost. But, always makes things more fun! We give you some party game prize inspiration further down in this post)
