This Game Day Bingo is a #buy2get2 collaboration with Skittles and Dollar General for Social Stars.
I’ll admit- I’m not really much of a football fan. With so much going on in our lives lately, it’s hard enough just to sit down and watch a 30 minute show on tv. Still, no matter what is going on, when the big game comes on, we make hot dogs or hot wings and have chips with dip, and we sit around the tv. Game day is one of those days that we really enjoy inviting friends over to our house. I love cooking for people, so cooking the perfect hot dog or picking out the perfect hot sauce and making football-shaped treats is so much fun for me. This year, I wanted to do something that would not only be fun for our friends, but was incredibly cost effective, and I thought, “What about Game Day Bingo?”
Although it took me a while to put together, I created 10 cards as well as a game day bag topper to hold the Bingo markers. I printed them out on card stock and cut each sheet in half, and voila! I wasn’t sure though what I’d use for the markers, and then I decided to hit up the local Dollar General in Waco to see what I could find. I came across their #Buy2Get2 promotion for Skittles and grabbed 2 bags so I could get 2 bags for free. I didn’t want to be short of Skittles if 10 people were going to be playing the Game Day Bingo, so I figured we were covered with 4 bags because people would probably be trying to eat their Bingo markers.
Once I got home, I printed out my game day bag topper for my Bingo markers, stapled it onto the zip top bag, and was finished! I am so excited with how cute it turned out and I can’t wait to get all the Bingo Marker bags ready for our friends that will be coming over for the big game in a couple weeks. I’m more of a commercial and halftime kind of girl when it comes to the big game, so I really wanted to incorporate those in the Game Day Bingo cards. Thankfully for you, I did all the hard work in creating 10 different Game Day Bingo cards! Even better, I am happily sharing them so YOU can download the Game Day Bingo cards and Game Day Bag Toppers for you and your friends to play during the big game with your bags of Skittles from Dollar General.
So, how do you play?
Well this Game Day Bingo isn’t your traditional Bingo. In order to play, you have to add your Skittles Bingo Marker to your Game Day Bingo card whenever you see that particular thing on your screen. For example, if a camera man is shown at some point during the game, you find your “Camera Man” square and add your Skittles piece to it! It’ll ensure that everyone at your house will be actively watching the game and will be keeping their eyes peeled to find the next square on their Game Day Bingo card.
What’s the prize?
The prize is up to you! I absolutely love this adorable football candy dish so that’s going to be our big prize during the big game. Get creative and grab something your guests will enjoy or be silly and give a game day related gag gift to the winner. The possibilities are endless!
