Are you looking for a reindeer dice game to play in the month of December? You have come to the right place. Here are three printable games that practice counting and number recognition in a fun way. These games are the perfect addition to Math centers or to play on Winter break.
Help Santa’s reindeer get to his sleigh in the North Pole. The first reindeer game includes a classic game board. For game pieces use buttons, gems, or pieces from a different game.
Both players put their game pieces at the start. The first player will roll one die and move his piece the corresponding number of spots. The second player will roll and move his game piece that amount of spaces. The first person to make it to the end space wins.
Here’s a fun game that includes scissor skills and number recognition. First, have your child or student cut apart the reindeer pieces. This is a great way to strengthen fine motor skills. It is easier for younger children to cut it if it is printed on card stock. Then, mix up the pieces. Roll a die. Find the corresponding parts that match the number you rolled. Keep rolling and collecting pieces. As you collect the strips, put them in order from 1 to 6. At the end of the game the reindeer will be put back together.
This game is a lot of fun and kids enjoy playing it over and over again. Another way to play it is to have a game mat that the strips can be matched to and set on top of to put the reindeer back together.
Help the reindeer throw the snowballs in this fun activity. Laminate the game board and use play dough as the snowballs. Roll a play dough snowball for each circle. When each circle is filled, the game is ready to begin. Roll the die. Take away or smash the amount of snowballs you rolled. Keep rolling and taking away the snowballs. When all of the snowballs are gone or smashed, you win!
If you don’t want to use play dough, you can also use cotton balls, mini marshmallows, or buttons as snowballs. We like to eat the marshmallows to take away the snowballs as we roll the dice.

Make delicious Christmas trees with cones, frosting and candy. We used green food coloring in a tub of frosting. Then, we coated the sugar cone with it. Decorating it with candy ornaments is the best part!
