Backseat Bingo is a reusable bingo card that you keep in your car. Participants look out the window and try to find the items that they have on their card and they shut the door to the items that they see. After shutting 5 doors in a row someone shouts out BINGO and they are the winner. If you like real Bingo, then I'm sure you will like this version too.

I remember playing this game for quite a few long car rides, after that I can't say I know where the cards went! Nor have I ever seen the cards for sale anywhere. So I decided to make my very own version of them using only cardboard, computer paper, and of course tape. I thought of a few different ways that this game could be created before coming up with the final product, so enjoy!! :)

Computer Paper
Duck Tape (Preferably Silver)

Step 1: What's Needed

There are only a few different materials that you will need:

2 pieces of 10.5 x 13 inch cardboard (Preferably corrugated)
At least one piece of 8.5 x 11 inch computer paper
Markers or Crayons (Optional)
Tape (Preferably Silver Duck)
Box cutter (Loads easier than using scissors)
The nice thing about making your own is that you can customize them to your part of the country and/or the interests of your passengers. When my son was in gradeschool I made a set that included all of the trucks and cars he and his friends were interested in, roadkill, glacial erratics (large boulders left behind by retreating glaciers - Mom was studying geology), and &quot;driver lost or has to make a U-Turn&quot;, as well as typical animals or buildings one might see. <br> <br>I like your little doors. We photocopied a half-dozen master cards and passed out crayons or pencils.
So true. I never considered roadkill hahaha great ideas :)
Cool!<br>Must be good for long car rides...
Thanks :) It's even better when you make a couple different cards and switch them up for each game!
What a wonderful idea... good job and great instructable! <br><br>5 Stars... and I don't know why my rating shows only 4.09???
Hahaha thank you :)
