Shapes, Colors, and Numbers Dice Games

Educational Activities

“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn. ” ~ O. Fred Donaldson

We noticed that kids love playing dice games so we created some drawing games that they can play by rolling the dice.

This game is brilliant in its simplicity. All you need is some dice, paper, and markers or crayons. The kids roll the dice to see what they will draw, then watch their creativity bloom.  It's a play-based way to teach children all about shapes, colors, and numbers.

The best part for us was seeing the pictures the kids drew with their designated shapes.
