Free Printable Vegetable Bingo: an easy way to teach food groups & nutrition (2024)

by Natasha Leave a Comment

This printable vegetable bingo game is a fun way to teach your child or students about vegetables, nutrition, food groups, and more! Grab from free printable vegetable bingo boards for your family or pick up a classroom set of vegetable bingo printables.

These vegetable bingo cards feature 30 different vegetables. The images are culinary vegetables (plus mushrooms), not botanical vegetables. (Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, pumpkins, and several other popular vegetables are botanical fruits.)

Although the veggies are labeled, reading is not required to play this vegetable bingo game. You can even use this vegetable bingo with preschoolers and older toddlers! My daughter (33 months at the time of writing) loves to play picture bingo as a matching game using the calling card tiles.

However you chose to use your vegetable bingo PDFs, I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Playing picture bingo is fun and easy:

  • Grab your PDF downloads (further down the post)
  • Print the desired number of bingo cards and the call cards at the back. Do not cut up a card to use as call cards because each card does not contain every possible image.
    • I always print bingo boards on presentation paper, a heavyweight paper with a special coating for crisp, vibrant images. If I’m going to use my colored ink, I want the cards to look their best!
  • Laminate your bingo boards and calling cards before cutting the cards out. This is optional, but highly recommended!
  • Cut the call cards apart. I’ve used this paper trimmer for years and it’s still going strong.
  • Place the tiles in a bowl and draw them one at a time. Read out the vegetable name and show the image around. Players mark the image if it appears on their card.
  • The first player to get 5 in a straight line or on the diagonal shouts “bingo!” to win.

When you laminate the bingo boards, you can use dry or wet erase markers to mark off the cards.

For an added fine motor challenge, have your child use small manipulative like large buttons, pompoms, or counting bears to mark their cards. To really up the challenge, have them use tongs to place the manipulatives.

As mentioned above, this game can also be played as solitaire. Have your child match the call cards to the bingo board. Here you can see my daughter playing a matching game with her summer bingo card:
