N is really getting the hang of rolling the dice when we play one of our simple board games. We’ve been working on his colors, and this Rainbow Colors Board Game for Toddlers is perfect for discussing the colors of the rainbow while rolling the custom dice A LOT 😉
If your toddler isn’t up for rolling the dice yet (it’s pretty easy to destroy it with little clumsy hands), you could call out colors or use a regular dice and work on numbers and counting at the same time.

Materials for Rainbow Colors Board Game
- Printable PDF file (see below).
- Two sheets of paper.
- Laminator, laminating pouches (optional).
- Paper cutter or scissors (optional).
- Glue, glue stick or sticky tape.
What’s in the printable PDF file?
The file contains two different game boards and a dice template.
One of the game boards has the start at the top left and the finish at the bottom right. The other game board has the start at top right and finish at the bottom left.
The dice template has a red, an orange, a yellow, a green, a blue, and a purple side.
Print out one of the game boards and the dice template. Laminate the game board for better durability, but don’t laminate the dice.
Cut out the dice template, fold at the dotted lines, and use some glue (I prefer a glue stick) or sticky tape to assemble the dice.
Start at the circle that says “start”, roll the dice, name the color, and put a manipulative on the next circle in that color. Continue until you get to “finish”. Then play it again if your kids’ attention span allows (or demands 😉 ) it!
