Looking for a fun Valentines bingo game to play at a Valentine’s Day party? These Valentines Day bingo cards are perfect for classroom parties, couples parties, Galentine’s Parties and more! Combine them with these Valentine’s games for an event all your guests will love!
One of my family’s traditions for Christmas Eve is to play Christmas bingo. Ever since my son has been old enough to really understand the game, he’s been absolutely hooked on bingo.
I’m pretty sure he was the most excited one to play Super Bowl commercial bingo earlier this month, even more than the adults who actually cared about the game!
And honestly, sometimes we just play as a fun after school activity. He doesn’t care that he’s not playing against anyone – he just likes to play!
It’s a fun game for Valentine’s Day class parties (play all together or in small groups), at large group parties, or even just for a fun family game night with a Valentine’s Day theme!
Valentine’s Day Bingo
Each of the printable cards is full of cute Valentine’s day images that will appeal to players of all ages! There are twenty-four different images so every one of the game boards will have each of the images on their cards, just in different places, which means they’ll be called in a different order.
I decided to go with this route with the printable cards because with kids, sometimes they lose attention or get frustrated when they can’t find the images on their cards.
So every image is on every card. Makes it a bit easier than say this love story Valentine’s Day game! It does mean that these cards won’t work for blackout but it’s still a fun Valentine’s Day game (and who really does blackout for Valentine’s Day anyway!).
Valentine Bingo Instructions
If you’ve ever played bingo, this is going to be very similar. If you have any questions about the instructions, feel free to leave comments and I’ll do my best to answer them!
Before the game, print and cut out your free printable Valentine’s Day bingo game. You can get unique bingo cards to print at the bottom of this post or if you need even more, you can get some in my shop here. There is a set of up to 40 different cards there!
Cut out the master images (aka game pieces) and put them in a baggie, bowl, or hat of some kind. Place the master list in front of you and get ready to play.
Print out the calling sheet – you’ll put the master images on this as you pull them out. And the best part is that because there aren’t a million different images or numbers (like in a classic bingo game), it’s easy to find the images on the calling sheet!
Before You Play
Before the game, make sure to answer and announce these questions.
- Can people bingo more than once or after they bingo are they out of the game?
- Will you do multiple bingos before people have to clear their card or one bingo, clear cards and start again?
- What will be a bingo? Will you do traditional or a non-traditional bingo (see examples below)?
Give everyone a one of the different bingo game cards. You’ll want people to have unique cards or else two people will bingo at the same time, which may still happen with all unique cards, but at least it’s not guaranteed to happen.
Give people some sort of markers to use for the game. If you’re going to play multiple games with the same cards, skip the bingo stampers and go with markers they can put on and take off each game.
If you use conversation hearts or something else edible, just make sure to give them a few extras in case they get a little hungry during the Valentine’s Day class party!
Some of my favorite Valentine bingo markers include:
- Sweetart heart shaped candy (you can also use conversation hearts, but I think the Sweetart ones taste better)
- Valentine color M&Ms (or other type of candy)
- Wood hearts (these could be collected and reused again every year)
- Bingo markers (even better if you pull out the Valentine colored ones)
I typically don’t recommend using the bingo stampers so that you can use these cards over and over again. If the cards get stamped, you have to reprint them for every Valentine party and that’s no fun.
Laminate the cards so that you can use them year after year! Then people can either use bingo markers or just cross off spaces with dry erase markers for each game! A game of bingo is something you can play year after year!
How to Play
Pull one image out of the bowl at a time and call it out to the group playing. Since these are images and not numbers like traditional bingo, I recommend describing the image (e.g., cupcake or three red hearts) and showing the images to the group as well.
Place the master image on the master list to keep track of what’s been called to verify anyone who bingos.
Everyone covers the matching image on their card.
Repeat, calling out images until someone has five in a row horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.
Or switch it up all together and instead of doing traditional (five in a row) bingo, have people cover the four corners, a postage stamp (four together), or whatever else your heart desires.
First person to bingo wins a prize! I have a list of prize options below but anything Valentine’s Day would be great!
Either continue playing for more bingos or have everyone clear their bingo cards and start fresh again.
Valentines Day Bingo Prize Ideas
I’ve included both big and small Valentines Day bingo prize ideas depending on if you’re playing say with a bunch of kids at a Valentine’s Day classroom party or playing at a couples party where only one person bingos! Choose your prize depending on the age and situation of the players.
Valentine Day Bingo Prize Ideas for Kids

Print the cards and make sure everyone has one. Pull an image and everyone covers it on their card. The first person to get five spaces in a row wins! This is the simplified version, make sure to read the entire post for specific instructions!
The free space is just bingo tradition, it’s always there! Plus, it gives everyone a starting bonus making it easier for people to get five in a row!
