Halloween Bingo

These bingo boards turned out so cute, they took a lot longer to make than I thought they would, but I totally love the end result.


At first when I said I would like to be in charge of doing bingo for Emma's class Halloween party I thought I would just go online, find a Halloween bingo set, print them off and be done.  But then when I started looking for already done bingo printables I couldn't find any I liked and most of them had images I wasn't really comfortable bringing into a first grade class.  So I made my own.  


I spent way to much time thinking of different Halloween things (like pumpkins, bats, spiders), googling them for free clip art and then downloading them.  Then I found this wonderful site.  It has a lot of really great, cute, not too scary images.  So I down loaded them, imported them into Picasa, cropped them to an 8X10 and used the collage feature to make 10 different game boards.  Them I printed out the 10 boards and 20 game pieces, mounted them to some SUPER cute Halloween paper (that I got 40% off on), and had them laminated (after all this work I definitely wanted to keep them around for next time.)

They worked great.  This size was perfect for the little 5 min. stations at the party.  Every kid was able to get a blackout just in time to move on to the next station.  I used tootsie rolls as markers and then they got to pick a pixie stick when they got their first bingo.  


I love this paper (although I must admit I am a bit of a cute scrapbook paper hoarder...and I should add fabric hoarding to that while I am confessing things.)


I thought about somehow giving you guys the boards, but for some reason I haven't done that yet.  So, if anyone wants them let me know and I will post a pdf or something.

update:  I went ahead and posted a pdf.  Here

  8. WOW! These are darling! I have twin boys who are celebrating their 6th birthday today! We are having a party later on and for one of the games I decided to play Bingo. I, too, thought I would just get online and copy some cards (fortunately for me this worked out better than I anticipated!) So many not very cute cards out there and then I lucked out and found your website! Thank you for saving me A LOT of time because I'm sure I would have made my own if I wouldn't have stumbled onto your site! Hugs to you! Mary
