Football Bingo

Are you planning a Super Bowl party or another football-themed event? Looking for some free football bingo cards to print? Well, welcome! This football bingo game is a great way to involve all ages and abilities on the day of the big game.

Five months out of the year, football talk is everywhere. Not everyone cares about the NFL or college teams. But, they may feel left out if not able to join in the football game conversations. Enter football bingo!

Football Bingo for Kids

I just love these printable football bingo cards. They use rich saturated colors that many young and disabled kids prefer. The football pictures are big and there are limited letters or wording on the cards.

So, they don’t need reading skills to play. It’s all matching skills–and still, some kids will need assistance. And that’s ok.

The goal is to include all kids in the activities that are going on.

Football Bingo Rules

You can print off as many cards as you need. Have colored M&Ms or something else small to use as tokens. There is a token sheet to print and cut up. Have someone pick the tokens out one by one and show it to the group.

You can do traditional bingo, 4 corners, blackout, letter T, and more. It’s great for fine motor development and following directions for kids who need practice in that area.

I plan on printing these free football bingo cards, buying tokens, and sending up a package to my son’s school. They often do something the Friday before the Super Bowl.

Different Ways to Win Bingo

There are several different ways to win at bingo. Of course, 5-in-a-row is usually the most common. But, there are many others.

  • Blackout (cover entire board)
  • X marks the spot (make an X using the free space in the middle)
  • 4 corners (pretty self-explanatory)
  • Capital letters–T, I, L
  • Box/Border

Have fun! Enjoy your football bingo game. The goal is inclusion!

  • Fine Motor Skills-Games, crafts and coloring activities are a great way to use and practice a child’s fine motor skills.
  • Speech and Language– Many parents seek out a language-rich environment for their child. Any activity can be an opportunity to use and repeat new words and language, mimicking sounds, new vocalizations and articulations.
  • Executive Functioning Skills– Depending on the game or activity, it can be an opportunity to practice executive functions such as working memory, sequencing, following directions, task initiation and more.
  • Handwriting and Fluency- This piggybacks onto the language skills a child needs, but with worksheets, coloring pages and games, they can be a low-risk opportunity to practice handwriting and fluency.
  • Practicing Previously Acquired Skills-Applying already acquired skills across all environments, bring the classroom teaching into the real world.
  • Sensory-Textures, sounds, taste, vestibular, interoception, anything!
  • Social Awareness-Practice traditional social skills in a safe environment, such as: joint attention, taking turns, reciprocating conversation, waiting politely, and more.
  • Gross Motor-If you’re in a new place, practice walking across uneven surfaces, new surfaces, inclines & declines, stairs, or increasing endurance.
