Lifetime Christmas Movie Activities
This year, I made a fun BINGO game to go along with my Christmas Movie watching. If you watch Christmas Movies alone, you can make it a silly challenge to take a sip of hot cocoa each time you find a BINGO square or take a bite of a Christmas cookie.
If you host a Christmas Movie watching party, you can pass out BINGO sheets to your guests and see who gets BINGO first. (Don’t worry, it won’t take long!)
