I’ve got a fun free printable Christmas game for you today- Elf Bingo. This is your classic bingo game board and instructions, but the actual gameboard is a little more challenging than your average bingo.

We were having more of spiritual and reverent agenda where we focused on the story of Christ’s birth, so I wanted the refreshments to reflect that. At first it seemed like a challenging task, how do I make Hot Chocolate reverent? But I will share what I came up with, I hope it is helpful to you!
