One of my favorite preschool themes is rainbows. What kids don’t love rainbows? I’ve created a Roll a Rainbow preschool math game for you to use with your little ones. This little printable game is a simple one to play with your preschool or kindergarten aged kids.
How to Play the Roll a Rainbow Preschool Math Game
This printable game is probably pretty self explanatory. To play it you print out one blank rainbow game. You can also do it in pairs with each player coloring their own paper.
You will need one marker or crayon for each color of the rainbow- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink.
Roll a number, and then find the match to the number on the rainbow and color it in.
Since there are only 6 sides on a die, I made pink a free roll, meaning you can color it on any of the other numbers rolled. This is perfect to use when they roll a repeat number that they may have already colored.
Keep playing until the whole rainbow is colored. If you are doing it in pairs or groups, the first one to complete wins!
The Roll a Rainbow game is a great one to help kids to learn how to recognize their numbers and count the dots on dice if you use a dot one. It’s also a good for preschool kids still learning their colors or the order of the rainbow!
One more thing it can help kids learn is to practice coloring between the lines. 🙂
The littler ones will not know the color words, but they can find the matching number on the rainbow.
As you can see, I used a die with the numbers written on. This is good for very young kids to help them with number recognition. The die with dots adds a bit more learning for kids as they will need to learn to count or recognize the dot pattern on the die.
Pin this to remember for later!
