Our family drove to the Panama City Beach last week and it takes about 7 hours to get there. It’s not terrible but it’s definitely not a quick trip! With 2 kids in tow, I needed to come up with some fun road trip games that would keep them entertained. There’s nothing worse than a bored kid on a long road trip…that’s usually when the question of “are we there yet?” happens over and over again! Our kids love bingo so I thought I would make a Road Trip Bingo Game. It was a hit and so easy to make so I thought I would share a tutorial for how to create your own bingo cards. It is such a fun game!
How To Create Your Own Bingo Game For Road Trip or Parties
Learn how to design unique and customized bingo cards to add a personal touch to your game. This article will guide you through the process of creating visually appealing bingo cards that reflect your style and theme. From choosing the right layout to adding creative elements, you’ll have a blast designing your own bingo cards and impressing everyone with your creativity!
There are a couple of different ways to make your Bingo cards.
- For a computer made printable sheet, I jumped on PicMonkey. It’s a great website for creating all sorts of things and editing too. They have all sorts of emojis you can use to create your own bingo sheets. The only things you need are paper and a printer.
- If you want to just grab some plain paper and markers, you could easily make a bingo board that way! Maybe grab a few sheets of different stickers to use as the pictures.
Instructions To Make Your Own Bingo Boards:
Start by going to PicMonkey on your computer. Select ‘Design’ at the top. this will open up a plain white sheet for you. Now go over to the left and select the butterfly icon and this will open up everything you need to create your board…there is a ‘lines’ category for making all your lines on your board and there are also all types of emoji categories. Choose the emojis for your board based on what kind of trip you are going on. Since we were traveling to the beach, I choose things that we probably would see on the way…sunglasses, trees, hats, etc. I like to add a free space to the middle.
If you have more than one child, just mix up the same emojis so they will have unique cards (different sheets)! Easy and fun, huh? Who knew it was so easy to create your own bingo cards, right?
Then your kids can use crayons to mark the ones they find. Print multiple copies if you want to play multiple times.
Making bingo cards is easy or if you prefer you can just print mine! Which one is more your style? Do you want to make your own board or use my bingo card templates?
Road Trip Bingo Printables
We love to play games in the car to help pass the time. This car bingo was so fun for my kiddos and I enjoyed being able to make my own bingo cards with the pictures I wanted to include.
For the bingo markers you can use coins or candy or even stickers if you don’t want to reuse the bingo boards. For traditional bingo, the first player to cover 5 in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally wins!
Making your own bingo boards is super easy and fun. It is a great way to personalize the game and allow kids to find things that will be specific to their road trip. If it is for a party and not a road trip bingo game, be sure to print some extra sheets. Then you can cut up the extras and use them as calling cards for calling out the bingo cues. It is even better than a calling list because it is completely random!
