What is Cinco De Mayo?

Cinco De Mayo is an annual celebration on May 5th in parts of the United States and Mexico for the Mexican army’s victory won in 1862 over the French at the battle of Puebla.

Supplies for Free Printable Cinco De Mayo Bingo Game

  • Free download
  • Letter size paper either white printer paper or white cardstock – for best results, I recommend using cardstock for durability and to not see through the paper when playing memory. For added durability, I like to laminate these to use them year after year.
  • Bingo markers
  • Laminator (optional)
  • Laminating sheets (optional)
  • Prizes (optional) – Although prizes are optional, it would be a great addition to the game to have a few Cinco De Mayo-themed prizes to gift to the winners!

Game Instructions for Cinco De Mayo Games

For Bingo with 2-5 players

  1. Download and print out bingo cards and calling cards. If you plan on playing memory, print out an additional copy of the calling cards. If you choose to laminate cards for durability do so before cutting a part. Next, cut out the calling cards.
  2. Pass out one bingo card per player and distribute your choice of bingo markers.
  3. Each player should use a bingo marker to mark their free space.
  4. Choose one player to hold up the first calling card, each player should then use a bingo marker to mark the corresponding space on their bingo card.
  5. Continue until one player has marked 5 spaces in a row. Bingo can occur either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. The player that marks 5 spaces in a row should say, “Bingo!” and they are declared the winner.

For Memory Game with 2 or more players

  1. After printing two sets of calling cards on cardstock, laminate, if you choose. Cut calling cards on lines, shuffle, and lay each calling card face down in columns and rows.
  2. The youngest player generally goes first. The player should select any 2 cards to see if they make a match. If it is a match, the player keeps the matching cards and attempts to make another match. If the cards are not a match, the player flips the cards back over and it’s the next player’s turn.
  3. Continue the steps until all of the cards are matched. The player with the most matches wins the game.
