Ways to use these free printable bingo cards outside of this bingo game
- Create a print rich environment by placing these colorful cards around the house. Add adhesive magnets to the back of the laminated flashcards and hang them on your fridge or washer.
- Print out multiple sets and work on sequences and patterns with your preschoolers!
- One of my favorite activities is to print off two sets and use them as a memory game. This activity is perfect for younger children to practice language development and memorization skills to connect the spoken word to the image. Make sure every time you flip over a card, you say the name of what’s on it! So much fun!
- You could also play a fun game by having your child stand on the opposite side of the room as you, or even better outside. First, shuffle the flashcards. Then, lift a flashcard and show your child. Lastly, if they guess it right, they can take a step or hop forward! If they mess up, a step backward! Will they make it to where you are?
- Play What’s Missing. Pick a handful of flashcards to your child. Talk about the flashcards and lay them flat on the table. Then, take a scarf and place them over the cards and remove a card. Have your child guess which card is missing.
- You could play a bilingual game and say the version in English. Have your child repeat it in Spanish and vice versa.
- You could place the flash cards face up on a table and see how fast your child can recognize the word. This is a great way to practice letter and word recognition.
- Play Slapjack by placing all of the flashcards face down on a table. Say a word on the list and have your child flip the cards over until they find the correct card.
- Lastly, you could cut the cards in half and use them as puzzles by having your child match the words and images with their correct halves.

- Place all of the Cinco de Mayo bingo game cards in the middle of the floor, or to keep them from going all over the place, in a small bowl.
- Have the first player randomly select one of the calling cards and announce it to the group. Players with that image can mark their card with their markers.

Tips to get maximum language use from this Cinco de Mayo Bingo in Spanish!
- To make sure you get the absolute most language use out of this bingo game, state the rule that the class or your family is only allowed to speak in Spanish!
- If the child flips a card and does not know the word of the image on the card, help them out with the pronunciation. Even better, before the game, flip the cards and review the words!
Then, you can ask questions or say phrases such as:
“¿Quién tiene el ____? “
“¡Solamente mamá tiene la ______!”
“¡Wau, todos tenemos los ___!”
¡Qué suertudo, tu tienes la piñata!
Repeating phrases like this to include the vocabulary word will help the new Spanish vocabulary stick!
- Allow your child sufficient time to process the card that has been chosen, and to identify the object on their card. Try not to interject or speed up their finding process. Doing so might confuse the child or discourage participation.
