Setting up

  1. First, download and print enough Cinco de Mayo bingo cards for each player. There are 5 different boards, if you are playing with more than 5 children playing just print out as many as you need.
  2. Gather small items to use as markers. These can be anything from beans and coins to themed stickers or paper clips.
  3. Cut out the calling cards, if you want to play multiple times I highly recommend laminating the calling boards before you cut them out.
  4. Determine in advance what pattern players need to complete to win. Remind children that there is a free space that they can utilize at any time. You can keep it simple with a straight line horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, or make it more challenging with patterns like a “T,” “X,” or a full card (blackout).

How to play

  1. Give each player a bingo card and a set of markers. Make sure no two players have the same card if possible.
  2. Go over the rules with everyone, explaining the winning patterns and how the game will be conducted. This ensures all kids understand and can enjoy the game to its fullest.
  3. The caller should mix up the calling cards and draw one at a time, announcing the item to all players.
  4. Players place a marker on the corresponding image or word on their card when it is called out. Encourage players to pay close attention so they don’t miss any calls.
  5. When a player completes the predetermined pattern, they shout “Bingo!” Play stops, and their card is checked for accuracy. If their claim is correct, they are declared the winner.
  6. If you wish, continue the game to find second and third places, or start anew. This can keep the fun going for longer and give everyone multiple chances to win.
