How to Play the Christmas Printable Activity

To play this game, all you will need is:

  • Dice
  • Crayons
  • A little helper!

(It really is that simple – for those moments when you just don’t know what to do next..!)

To begin, have your preschooler roll the dice and colour in one of the sections for that colour.

Keep rolling the dice until all of the sections are coloured in, and your picture resembles the coloured in picture on the printable sheet.

How to play the competitive version!

If you want to make the game more of a challenge, you or an older sibling could play against them (if you think your preschooler can handle this – my son is still terrible when it comes to being competitive!)

Print out whichever sheet you wish to play, and then simply take it in turns to roll the dice and colour in every time you roll – whoever manages to colour it in first wins!

(You could also play this with a sheet each without the competitive element, which would encourage them to be independent as they see you colour your sheet in and they do the same)
