Why Play Birthday Bingo?

Birthday Bingo is the life of the party because who can resist the allure of winning with a satisfying “BINGO!” 

Birthday Bingo brings everyone together.  Picture this: a room filled with laughter, cheers, and a dash of friendly rivalry as people share their epic tales of Bingo triumphs. Trust us; these memories will last a lifetime! 

How to Play Birthday Bingo


Birthday Bingo is a piece of cake to play! The rules are as simple as blowing out candles on a cake. Each player gets a game sheet with a grid of squares filled with different birthday-related items, like “cake,” “balloon,” or “gift.” The goal is to mark off these items as they’re called out during the game. The first person to complete their bingo card wins this fun birthday game.


All you need to get the party started are game sheets and markers. You can print your game sheets that are available below in this article. As for markers, anything works – from classic Bingo daubers to colorful candies. Just make sure they won’t mysteriously disappear before the first callout!


Get ready to Bingo like a pro! First, distribute the game sheets and markers to all the party animals. Don’t forget to have a prize stash on hand for the lucky winners! Next, appoint a charismatic bingo caller to announce the items randomly. 

As the caller announces the items, players mark them off on their sheets with a confident dab or a cheeky tick. And remember, shouting “BINGO!” is mandatory to claim the victory dance! The first player to complete a full row – horizontally or vertically, – wins a prize and eternal bragging rights. You can also have a longer game by waiting to declare a winner until the whole sheet is filled out, rather than just one row.

But hold your applause; the fun doesn’t stop there! Keep playing multiple rounds, or amp up the excitement with a full-house Bingo. The more, the merrier!

So, whether you’re hosting a kiddo’s birthday bash or celebrating the “forever 29” milestones, Birthday Bingo is the ultimate crowd-pleaser that guarantees laughter, connections, and memories to cherish. Now, let’s get this party rolling!

Birthday Bingo Variations: Adapting Birthday Bingo for Different Age Groups

For younger children, you may want to use the birthday bingo sheet with pictures/icons on it so if they don’t know all their numbers yet or it may be too confusing for them, they’ll still be able to play. The final sheet in this set includes all the possible icons. Simply cut out the squares and pull each one from a hat until someone wins.

For a short game, declare the winner once someone has filled out one row or column of their bingo sheet. For a longer game, declare a winner once someone fills out their entire bingo sheet.

For older kids, teens and adults, you can use the birthday bingo sheet with numbers if you prefer. The final sheet in that set includes the numbers 1-99; print it off and cut out the squares. Pull each number from the hat until a winner is declared or use the final sheet as a bingo calling card and cross off each number until there are none left. Want to reuse your game? Use card stock, laminate the sheets and use dry erase markers again and again!
