5 fun bingo facts for kids

As I was creating these road trip bingo printables, I started thinking about the origins of this hugely popular game. And being the history nerd that I am, I searched online for some bingo facts that would be fun to share with your family.

  1. The game originated in Italy around 1530 and then made its way to other European countries like France and Great Britain (that’s 491 years ago!).
  1. Bingo wasn’t always called bingo. It was first called beano because people would use beans to cover up up the numbers on their bingo sheets.
  1. Edwin S. Lowe, a toymaker and entrepreneur, was the one who renamed the game beano to bingo!
  1. Beano is still played in Italy every week on Saturdays!
  1. The Germans used bingo cards to teach multiplication facts to students.

Each page included in this PDF download is designed to print onto standard 8.5 x 11″ pieces of printer paper. I highly recommend that you use sheet protectors and dry erase markers to reuse these game sheets to play road trip bingo over and over again to help your family pass the time on all your road trip adventures.

This free bingo game includes five different game sheet variations. This means that you can play this road trip bingo activity with a group of up to five people. But, if you have more than five people don’t worry! I’ve included a blank bingo sheet.

You can print out as many blank sheets as needed and then create your own bingo sheet! I suggest you print out the blank bingo sheet, slide it into a sheet protector and use a dry erase marker to create your own bingo game sheet. That way you can create new game sheets easily without having to reprint the blank game sheets!

You can write or draw anything road trip related on your bingo game sheet. Images used in the premade game sheets are as follows:

  • Gas pump (gas station)
  • Truck
  • Traffic cone
  • Taxi
  • Dog
  • Bridge
  • Train
  • Stop sign
  • Helicopter
  • Car
  • Tow truck
  • Motorcycle
  • Semi truck
  • Construction zone (barricade)
  • Deer
  • Concrete truck (concrete mixer)
  • American flag
  • Dump truck
  • Trash truck
  • Boat
  • Airplane
  • Delivery truck
  • RV
  • Van
  • Camper
  • House
  • Traffic light
  • Train tracks
  • Lake (body of water)

If you have more than five people in your group, I would give the premade road trip bingo game sheets to the kids and then have the adults use the blank game sheets to create their own.

How to play road trip bingo

Unlike traditional bingo (or beano 😉), numbers are not going to be called out and there will not be a designated caller. Instead, everyone will be on the lookout to spot items on their bingo game sheets.

Each player should have a bingo game sheet (inside a page protector) and a dry erase marker. As your start your journey, every player should keep their eyes peeled to spot an item on the bingo game sheet.

When someone spots an item on their sheet, they will cross that item off. The first person to get five in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, wins!

After a winner has been confirmed, simply wipe away the dry erase marker and play again!

Other ways to make the road trip bingo game last longer and keep the fun going!

One of the easiest ways to keep the fun going is to make changes to how people play the game. Here are three ways to add some extra fun to this road trip bingo printable set:

  • Play swap bingo! In the middle of the game (and if everyone agrees beforehand), swap your bingo game sheets.
  • Instead of winning by getting five in a row, play four corners. This is where only the four corners have to be crossed off.
  • Play to win by letters patterns. Like making an X or L or C on the bingo game sheet in order to win. Pick the first letter of someone’s name to personalize the game experience!
