If you saw my Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt Printable, you will love this twist on it! Our kids are getting older and we wanted to make the annual Christmas light viewing a little harder than the regular scavenger hunt. We came up with this Christmas Lights Bingo Game that will do the trick.
The point of the Family Bingo game is to not only spend time as a family and have fun, but to get out of the house. So go walk around a mall or a park, drive around your town, or do whatever you have to in order to get your 5 in a row, spelling “LIGHT!” The winner must announce “LIGHT” and then prove that they got five spaces in a row.

Heading out to look at the Christmas lights is something we have done every year since the kids were small. We still want to make it a tradition while we have the kids here at home with us. They do both look forward to it and since we have incorporated the games as they have gotten older, they love it even more.
We like to have some healthy competition in our house and any time I can come up with games for us to play, we all put our game faces on and get ready to play.
We created four different bingo cards to go with this game. They all have the same images on them, but they are all in a different order. We laminated them so we can use dry-erase markers and wipe them off when we get home and use them again next year.
When we head out this year, I will have all of the bingo cards face-down on the table and we will roll a dice to see who gets to pick their card first.
I will put the cards on clip boards so they are easy to mark while we are driving in the car.

- How to Play Christmas Light Bingo. While driving around looking at Christmas lights, or “Christmas Pretties” (what we like to call them), mark off the Christmas lights or decoration in the circle that you find! Each line of 4 (scored vertically, horizontally, or diagonally) counts for 5 points. The entire board is another 5 points.
Hot cocoa will be served and a side of cookies or another snack will surely be included.
Once we are in the car and say, “start”, the game begins.
As we drive around the neighborhoods to look at lights, each person needs to look for certain things on their bingo card and cross left off as they see them.
The first person to get four in a row needs to tell “bingo” and they win.
You can play this over and over again as people win and as you drive to different neighborhoods.
If your family is anything like ours, tradition is important and so is a little game to make those traditions even more fun.
I would love to know if you give this a try! Print off the FREE bingo cards HERE.
