Print this fun free roll a rainbow game to play for kids at home and at school.
I love the whole idea of using rainbows to teach colors, numbers, counting and math. This resource has a few pages so includes the game as well as some fun math extensions AND even a creative writing options. Rolling dice is just so satisfying. I love the rumble of the dice as they bang against each other in the container and the anticipation of what will appear when rolled. I hope you love this Roll a Rainbow Game Printable that is perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day and all year round too.
How to Play Roll A Rainbow
Each player will need a printed sheet with the rainbow and the dice on it. Take turns rolling one die. If a player rolls a color that has not been colored in the rainbow yet, color it in. Once one of the players has all six of the colors, they win.
This can also be done in a math center for younger kids learning to count to six and learning their colors. If you have kid working alone, make sure they have a color chart that show colors and how they are spelled to support them in being successful. If you print the pages in color, they will already have this tool available.
DOTS Game Printable
Objective of the game: The game is played until all the dots become boxes, and the player with the most boxes completed at the end becomes the winner.
Each player takes a turn connecting one heart to another adjacent heart horizontally or vertically, one move at a time. After a while, the board begins to fill with a series of horizontal and vertical lines, some connected, some not. When a player draws a line that forms a square, that player fills the square with his first initial. The player, who drew the closing line on the square, gets another turn. As you can see, I did not win this round! This is a great game in addition to the Roll a Rainbow Game Printable.
Advanced Math With Roll A Rainbow Game
If playing alone and using for more advanced math then counting and transferring information, there are additional sheets that can be added to a math center in my TpT store. These include tallying!
There is an additional page that takes it to the next level for kids with more advanced mathematical skills working on percentages. This is part of the resource in my TpT store.
More MATH Printable Fun
If you are looking for more math activities to use with young kids, you might love this other resource too, Gold Coin Toss Probability! It is geared towards early elementary ages but like the Roll The Roll a Rainbow Game, also has further math extensions to incorporate use for older kids.
