Free Printable Thanksgiving Bingo Game
I’m so happy to offer you free printables on Motherhood Life Balance. What’s unique about this Thanksgiving-themed bingo game is that your kids can color it before playing. I kept the pages black and white so anyone could print them, and the kids could make the game their own before they played it.
Once all the pages are colored in, you cut out the calling pieces, get out some markers or dot colors, and you’re ready to play.
It’s an excellent Thanksgiving activity for all ages. Kids and adults can enjoy this simple yet fun bingo game.

Instructions on How to Play Thanksgiving Bingo
- Print out the printable sheets.
- Have your kids color the sheets so they make the game their own.
- Cut out the calling cards.
- Laminate the game cards (if you want it as a keepsake for years to come).
- Put all the calling cards in a box or hat so you can randomly call out bingo images.
- Let everyone pick their bingo card.
- Grab some buttons or markers to use when you have a match.
- Designate one person to call out the thanksgiving images.
- The caller randomly picks an image from the hat or container with all the cut-out calling cards. (Example: you choose the pumpkin pie image and call out “pumpkin pie.”)
- Anyone with that image (“pumpkin pie”) places a marker on the image.
- Once anyone has a straight line or diagonal, they yell out “BINGO!”
Once someone has won the round clear the bingo cards and play again!
More Ways to Play
There are so many fun ways to play Thanksgiving bingo. You can easily change the combination of winning cards. For example, you could play a round where the winner needs to cover the entire board, or play that the winner must make a whole box around their bingo card.
To take this bingo game to the next level, offer a few prizes. My family sometimes uses cheap chocolate bars as a winning treats. We number the bars 1-10, then place ten pieces of paper numbered 1-10 into a small container.
When someone wins a bingo round, we let them pick a number from the container, and they get the corresponding chocolate bar.
You keep playing like this until all the chocolate bars are gone. Once that happens, you can play a few stealing rounds.
Stealing Round Rules
Once all the chocolate bars are gone, get everyone to put their numbered pieces of paper back into the container. Play a few more rounds of bingo, and once there is a winner, they get to pick a number from the container. Whatever number they get, they can steal that chocolate bar.
We love this fun Thanksgiving game – it’s become a holiday tradition in our family. We usually play after Thanksgiving dinner, alongside some delicious festive desserts.
