As a great ice-breaker, or source of friendly competition among old pals, gather your party guests for a game of bingo. Guests will fill out their boards with numbers of their choice within the following column ranges: 1-16 under H; 16-30 under O; 31-45 under U; 46-60 under S; 61-75 under E. Print off our Housewarming Bingo Call-Out Sheet and cut out the numbered squares. Draw the squares, one at a time, from a bowl or hat. Any guests with that letter-number combination on their board can cover it with a board marker. First one to fill out an entire row, column or diagonal yells out "HOUSE!" and earns the coveted title of Housewarming Bingo Champion.
For bingo board markers, look no further than your leftover moving supplies!
- Paint samples: If you've recently painted your new home, chances are you have sheets upon sheets of leftover paint samples. Cut them up into squares for colorful bingo markers.
- Moving boxes: Cut the flap off a moving box and then continue to cut into tiny squares. Cardboard makes for a durable, sturdy bingo marker.
- Coins: With all the costs associated with moving, you probably have a bunch of spare change lying around. Round up those coins for your Housewarming Bingo game!
