Everybody loves a fun game of bingo—especially students! Get them engaged and active in their school and community with this inspiring recycle bingo game. They’ll have a blast, all while learning fun facts about the what, where and how of recycling, plus, why they should get involved, and take action!

Game Rules

  • Hand out bingo cards to student players. There are 30 unique versions in our printables.
  • Pick a small object to mark your squares. We love the idea of clean, washed recyclable bottle caps!
  • You or a student can be the Bingo MC and call out from the list of planet-themed icons on the prompt sheet. Check them off as you go. Or, cut out the planet pics from a few boards, and pull from a hat to make the bingo calls.
  • Once a student has 5 squares covered in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally), they call out “Recyle Rally!” or, more traditionally, “BINGO!” to win the round.
