Seriously, who doesn’t like to color? Coloring has always been something I have enjoyed. Obviously as a child, but even as a teenager I could find myself coloring while watching a movie or TV and I even enjoy coloring the adult coloring books. My absolute favorite, though, is a fresh box of crayons. Ones where all of the colors are bright and bold and the tips are crisp and pointed. I know you know what I mean. It’s The.Best. This excitement carries itself through onto this super fun Free Printable Crayon Box Roll and Count.

How To Prep and Play

The first thing is to print the activity.

Next, I either laminate the printable or put it in the dry erase pocket.

We like using the dry erase pockets for our Roll and Count activities. They are much easier and more cost effective in the long run than laminating.

Although we still laminate all.the.time. When I KNOW my daughter is going to be obsessed with an activity I will laminate it, so it’s always ready to go for her. These dry erase pouches are a fabulous alternative though.

Count crayons with this free printable math game for counting. Kindergarteners love these roll and count games.

To play, have the child roll the dice. The number that it lands on will be the number that is focused on for this round. Have the child say the number, write the number, write the number word and put the correct number of counters on the crayon box. I like to have the child count as they are putting it on the mat as well. Keep this going as long as the child is interested.

  1. The link for the dice doesn’t take you to those dice. I searched Amazon and couldn’t find them. Are there any other sources or links for them?

    Thanks!

    1. I’m not sure what you mean. I checked the link and the foam dice link does pull up the Learning Resources foam dice that we used and the differentiated instruction cube link does pull up photo cubes.
