My preschooler cannot get enough of her rainbow bear counters! She plays with them every day. Using her size matching cards, spin & cover color matching game and her personal favorite, conversation practice our most used school tool is our rainbow bears. This Rainbow Bear dice game for preschoolers was an easy addition to our collection of activities because it takes absolutely no prep work. Our weekly challenge was dice, so make sure you check out all the fun ideas for learning with dice at the end of this post.
Materials needed for the Rainbow Bear Dice Game:
Our favorite rainbow bears are the bears from Carson-Dellosa. Any bears will work for this game, but these are the most versatile that we have found.
We also love our foam dice! You can use any dice for the game, but we like funky dice. They make learning lots of fun!

To play the game: Have your child roll the dice and then add the correct number of bears to the cup. Using one die, you child can count the dots or you can use two dice and add the numbers together for an extra challenge.
For an extra challenge, give you child instructions such as “add 3 red bears to the cup” or ” add 2 baby bears to the cup” to help with language skills while they are working on math.
With my preschooler, there are never too many opportunities to work on language skills.
After the cup has been filled you can restart the game, but this time use subtraction. Remove the correct number of bears each time.

With older kids you can use a larger cup and have them track how many rolls it takes to fill the cup. Repeat a few times and see if it’s the same number of rolls.
