Bingo is one of the first games I remember playing as an older child. We played in school, at a friends house or as part of the family game night. We had the typical number bingos, which was fun but today we have stepped up the Bingo game with this fun Canada Day Bingo Game.
This printable set is helpful for helping children with skills such as sorting, identifying, as well as of course introducing different elements of Canada Day and Canada’s rich history.
This is a perfect activity to share with friends and family during a barbeque on Canada Day or as part of a homeschool lesson for your own kids. We’ve included various elements of Canada and it’s history as part of the game.
This makes learning about Canada simple and easy to understand. This is an excellent activity for young kids as well as teenagers, Bingo is just a fun game!

Printable Canada Bingo Game
The best part about playing Bingo is that it just gives you time to slow down. Everyone loves the idea of playing a family game together!

How To Use Printable
This printable set is SUPER easy to use. The first step is to print out the set.
One option is to laminate each page. This is helpful if you plan to use the game over and over. With lamination, there will be no need to reprint in the future.
If you only plan on using this activity one time, lamination would not be necessary.
The next thing we did is point out each individual set of objects, one of each, and talk about what it is. If my children didn’t know what it was or the meaning behind it, I would explain. We talked about the importance of each object to Canada and why it was included in this activity.
Next, I ask my children to find objects to use as a marker for the game. We sometimes use traditional bingo dobbers or bingo chips but have also used such things as coins.
I call the objects and if my children have them on their cards, they put a marker on it. Whoever gets a line complete first, wins.
Each page has a different set of objects, so each page is different from one another.

Fun Bingo Prizes
Don’t forget to sprinkle in some Bingo prizes. The kids love when I shake things up a bit and have some fun prizes as well. I don’t think it’s important to make it about competition but having some fun little prizes can add to the excitement.
Some simple Bingo prizes could be pennies and quarters, a snack or treat, or an extra few minutes of screen time, too. It can also be as simple as the person who wins gets to pick out the next movie during movie night as well.
Little prizes like that can go a long way in making the activities that much more engaging and fun! You can also ask the kids what they think would be good prizes too so that they’re ready and excited to jump in and play. Use their ideas as fun things to incorporate so that they’re ready to play!
