How To Setup An Animal Bingo Game

Step 1: Download and print a copy of our free summer bingo printable. Make sure your printer settings are set to print in color and in portrait orientation. For best results we suggest using high quality double thick card stock paper. The download link for our free summer bingo printable is located at the bottom of this post.

Step 2: Cut out the different bingo boards. Each bingo card was created in 5 x 7 size. So, you can cut them to size or leave them full page. It’s up to you.

Step 3: Cut out one call sheet into squares. You should have 25 colorful summer images when you are done. Place them in a small paper bag, bowl or jar so you can pull them out in random order as you play. Give them a good shake before starting to play.

Step 4:  Cut out all your sea shell bingo markers and give each player a handful of markers before starting the game.

Step 5: Give each player a bingo game board and start playing – the first player to get a straight line, magic T, 4 corners or full card BINGOS! See more bingo game options below.
