Great American Family Christmas Movie Activities
Last year, I made a 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!)
The Christmas Movie BINGO is now available. You can also find it in my Etsy shop if you don’t want to join the list.
