  • Bird
  • Butterfly
  • Pinecone
  • Acorn
  • Mushroom
  • Dragonfly
  • Pond

How To Play Nature Bingo

  1. Print off the free printable nature bingo cards that are linked later in this post
  2. Give each person playing a unique bingo card
  3. ​Decide on the variation of bingo you are going to play, some ideas include:
    • A complete horizontal, diagonal or vertical line- this is the most traditional bingo game
    • Blackout bingo (goal is to fill the whole card)
    • 4 corners
    • Full outside square outline
  4. Go on a nature hike together, this game is almost like a little scavenger hunt
  5. As someone finds items on their bingo card have them yell out what they found and show the group
  6. People who have the item that was found on their card can mark off that spot
  7. Once someone has completed the variation you choose above they call out “bingo” and win that round
  8. Have everyone clear their cards and play again!

Tips/Tricks When Playing Nature Bingo

Before you go out on your nature bingo adventure don’t forget to make a pair of toilet paper binoculars to help you find all of the nature items on your bingo card!

I recommend laminating these bingo cards to create a reusable game of fun! We love taking these on our adventures and during longer outings play multiple rounds so its really nice to be able to wipe them off and keep playing.

The best way to play this with younger kids is to review the items on the card before starting the game. The pictures on the card will help them with identification but it is helpful before the first game to talk them through each item as well.
