2D Shapes Winter Bingo
I’ve included a full class set of BINGO cards, so you can use this Winter BINGO game for a whole class activity (great for indoor recess!) or during small groups.
There is also color and black and white versions of this Shapes Bingo, so you can save on ink if you need to. Personally, I adore my HP Instant Ink subscription. I’m able to print in full color without worrying about how much more it costs.
HP sends me new cartridges in the mail when my printer tells them I’m starting to run low. I have been using it for 4 years and have never run out of ink.
If you decide to sign up through this link, you will get 1 FREE month of ink!
(BTW… no one is paying me to say all those nice things. *wink* I just really love saving money on ink!)
Materials Needed For Winter Shapes Bingo
This game is not only fun for kids to play, but it is incredibly simple prep as well.
To prep the 2D Shapes BINGO game: Print and laminate.
If you decide not to laminate, I recommend using these write & wipe page protectors to keep the pages safe from the kids.
Then cut out the call cards and toss them in a ‘hat’ or bowl. I love using this Paper Trimmer to prepare my printables.

How to play the Winter BINGO shapes activity:
Playing this game can is as simple as pulling a bingo call slip from a bowl and calling the name of the shape to the child(ren). Kids can look at their board to find the matching shape.
For learners who need more support, you can show each card as it is selected and have the child find the matching picture, rather than relying on auditory skills.
You can also have the students could the number of sides on the shapes to find the matches. This provides an excellent opportunity to practice counting skills without relying on flash cards.
To add a challenge to the game call out how many sides or vertices the shape has.
