ROLL A Cupcake PRINTABLE DICE GAME
Playing games helps reinforce concepts while keeping learning fun. My favorite way to keep my kids engaged in learning is by playing board games.
Repetition is important in the learning process, which is why I love changing things up with different themes. It helps keep activities from feeling boring.
This game is simple to play and helps preschool and kindergarten children work on number recognition and subitizing when rolling the die and following the directions.
For older children, you could have them roll two dice and adjust the dice key to incorporate addition, subtraction, or multiplication facts.
How fun would it be to plan a day baking cupcakes and playing this game together?

HOW TO PLAY ROLL A Cupcake GAME
Print as many dice key cards as needed. If multiple children will be playing together at the same time, each one needs a blank card and cupcake base. Everyone can share the decoration cards. You may print additional decoration pieces as needed.
If you want each student to have their own set, then print out the complete game set for each child.
Cut out the cupcake bases and decoration cards and set them aside.
Roll the die and match the number to the dice key and follow the directions for which embellishments to add!
See who can roll one of each type first and share your decorated cupcakes with each other. Then slide the cards off and start rolling to decorate again!
