Roll a Cub Christmas Tree Decorating Printable Game for Preschool Rules
The rules of the game are simple.
- Take turns
- Roll the die
- Move to the next space with that symbol on
- The winner the person to reach the end first!
As you play it’s a great time to add in a little maths, how many spaces have they moved?
So that you can play with older toddlers and younger preschoolers that haven’t yet learnt to count and recognise the arrangement of dots on the dice we’ve created our own dice to use.
If you wish you could of course switch out for a standard dice and move the spaces using that one.
Looking for another fun game for your little ones to do indoors. Then our Christmas Scavenger Hunt is perfect.
Printing our Your Game for Christmas Fun
We recommend when printing out the game you make sure that you have adjusted the fit to your size paper.
This means whether you are in the UK or the USA you will be able to construct the dice and play the game easily.
If you don’t adjust you risk losing part of the game in the printing process.
In the Rainy Day Mum house, we use an Epson EcoTank (read our review here) for the printing to save ink and the environment and recommend that the games are printed on high quality and good cardstock, not paper!
Once printed it can be useful to laminate your game board and pieces this will make them much harder wearing and last longer especially with younger children.

How to Make your Game Dice for the Printable Christmas Board Game
With your game board and piece ready to go you need to construct your dice.
It’s a simple net and the instructions are straightforward. You’ll want to fold the edges at the flaps to make sure that they stick easily.
I’ve found over the years that to quickly and effectively make these it’s better to use double-sided sticky tape rather than glue.
Just cut some small sections from the tape roll and then attach to the flaps, peel off the backing and then form into the dice shape.
The Christmas dice for the game is the perfect size for little hands to be able to hold and throw easily and because you’ve made it from a piece card it won’t damage things!
