Roll–A- Rainbow Game

rfunOur next rainbow activity is a game inspired by Katherine Marie Photography. Truly great stuff there. I loved her idea for this game but I needed it to work with my preschoolers so I created a printable and used just one foam die {sounds weird} for our version to avoid having to add.

 

What you need:  M & M’s of course! I sorted them by color but realized I didn’t really need to, other than taking out the brown ones. Otherwise a big bag of M & M’s has roughly an equal amount of each color in a bag. Didn’t know that! Of course I didn’t count them and I had already eaten some…

Foam dice: I got mine at 50/50 Outlet, a party supply store. Rainbow pattern {download below}.

Brett {8 years} really enjoyed this game. The rest of this group is young so they mostly did color matching and didn’t roll the die. One just sat and ate his M & M’s. Smart kiddo. I tried to go around & encourage matching and counting.

We’ll do this again before the end of the month/our rainbow theme! m7

  1. This is wonderful!

  2. Very cute but did you really let them eat all those M&M’s?

  3. No they did not eat them all. After we sorted them by color, each child got a small cup with a variety of colors. I only gave them the amount they needed to work with & yes, they could eat them when they were done.

  4. This is so cute. Thank you for sharing!

  1. […] The idea of this game was to roll 2 different sets of dice. One had numbers and the other had colors. Each child had a turn rolling to see which color to cover, and how many needed covering. For example, if someone rolled a 3 and the color orange, that person would cover 3 of their orange dots with skittles. The first one to cover their rainbow is the winner. One word of caution, if there are a lot of children at the party, they may get impatient waiting or their turn. Perhaps have several sets of dice going at the same time?
