Paper Airplane Bingo Game
Get Bingo first by folding paper airplanes and completing a variety of different challenges.
This is a familiar game where everyone can enjoy a variety of fun activities involving paper airplanes. It offers a mix of challenges to test your dexterity, creativity, and skill and it’s perfect for anyone looking to engage in a fun, hands-on experience with friends and family. We have prepared a downloadable kit that includes all of the materials that you will need to print and play Bingo at home.
How To Play
To prepare, print out the paper airplane challenges, cut them out and put them into a box so they can be mixed up and drawn out at random.
Then, print out a Bingo card for each player and pass them out. Each player should get a randomized card. If everyone has the same card, then multiple players could win at the same time! The downloadable kit includes 30 randomized cards.
A challenge will be randomly pulled from the box. Each challenge corresponds to a square on each person's Bingo card. For example, the challenge may be "Fold a paper airplane while blindfolded". Each player will attempt to successfully complete the challenge. If they do, they can mark that square as completed. The first player to get five in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) wins!
We have prepared the Bingo cards, challenges and instructions for you to download. If you have a Pilot's License, you can download the PDF and easily print and play this game at your next party.
