Printable Bingo Cards Ready? Click here to begin Not sure how to play BINGO? You can use spare coins or buttons for markers but if you would like to make your own click here. Are you using our custom bingo with a group of 15 or more? Note: Now you can replace some or all of the pictures in the picture bingo option with vocabulary words to help teach students vocabulary. We have three different types of picture bingo cards that you can make: 3x3, 4x4 and 5x5 picture bingo using pictures from a theme that you select or substitute vocabulary words that you provide. We also have a traditional 5x5 number bingo card available to print. You may want to laminate the bingo cards after you print them. You'll notice that I've combined a few themes that I typically list separately (for example, I combined Blues Clues, Dora the Explorer, Dragon Tales and Maggie and the Ferocious Beast to make the "Young Children Shows" bingo card). Have fun!
