Watching sappy, predictable holiday movies has long been a part of our Christmas traditions. Last year, we discovered that watching is even more fun if paired with Christmas Movie Bingo!My girls and I like to curl up in our pyjamas or our matching Christmas movie watching shirts in front of the TV. Add in some holiday baking or popcorn and hot chocolate and you have the recipe for a relaxing afternoon.
Those Hallmark Christmas movies can be a wee bit addictive! Often, before we know it, the whole day has slipped by.
The reason it’s so much more fun to watch with your bingo cards in hand is it makes the predictability of the movies even funnier.
Hallmark Christmas Movie Bingo:
- Christmas Movie Bingo Cards (download yours here)
- marker, bingo daubers, or holiday stickers to cover the game squares
- Download and print out the bingo cards.
- As you watch holiday movies, mark all the squares that apply.
- The winner is either the first person to fill five in a row OR you can just keep watching movies until you’re able to fill in every square on the cards.
So print off those bingo cards, pop some popcorn, get a mug of hot cocoa, and get ready to binge watch this season’s best!
Last year, my girls and I filled out all the squares on our cards.
That’s an awful lot of TV watching (!), but we sometimes made ornaments or iced cookies while we watched. One year, we rolled croquettes during the shows and the cheesy romance films were a great distraction for a tedious task.
If you want to give prizes to the winner, you can choose holiday themed treats like candy canes or holiday baking. And instead of yelling out “Bingo”, you can choose a word more fitting to the theme like “Mistletoe”!
