Apart from using the flashcards with the game cards in this Bingo game, you can use these flashcards in the following ways too:
- Create a print rich environment by placing these 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!
- 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 flashcards face up on a table and see how fast your child can recognize the word.
- 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.

You will also receive 11 Bingo Suertudo playing cards to go along with the vocabulary cards. This means that you can play with up to 11 players in each game!
This St Patrick’s Day Bingo in Spanish is called Bingo Suertudo. Suertudo is a colloquial way of saying lucky in Spanish!
Once you print off your St. Patrick’s Day vocabulary cards and bingo mats, I recommend laminating them so you can save them for future use!
Then, cut out the laminated cards.
Once the spring vocabulary cards are cut out, place the cards face down in a pile or in random order.
Give each player a bingo sheet.
Then in order (youngest to oldest/ clockwise/ however you choose) pick up a card from the pile. Have the person picking up the card say what card they have in Spanish.
Lastly, all players with the selected vocabulary card on their bingo sheet, should mark it with a bingo chip.
The first player to fill their card wins!
Tips to get maximum language use from this St. Patrick’s Day 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 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 temos los ___!”
¡Qué suertudo, tu tienes el arcoiris!
Repeating phrases like this to include the vocabulary word with 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.
