Roll a Christmas Tree (Game &Printable)

Last fall I found the cutest game from The Happy Home Fairy.  It was called Roll a Pumpkin.  I'm always looking for fun seasonal things to do with my boys, so we gave it a try.  They had a ball with it!  And the great thing is, you can play it over and over and over.  
Well, I decided we needed a Christmas version of the game, so we came up with Roll a Christmas Tree.  Same concept as the pumpkin game, this time we're just making a Christmas tree. You could do anything with this game.  Roll a Santa, reindeer, present, oh, I just thought of a gingerbread house/man- that would be adorable!  We'll have to work on that one.  :)



Supplies
*2 dice
*crayons, markers, or colored pencils
*one Christmas tree for each player (here is a cute one to print out, or you can just draw your own)
*instruction sheet (found here)

The game is pretty self-explanatory.  Just follow the rules on the instruction sheet.  My boys and I played yesterday (WARNING! you may be rolling forever to get your lights.  Rolling snake eyes for a two can take a long time!).  We had a lot of fun!  My three-year-old rolled a few times and then just started drawing whatever he wanted whenever he wanted.  We all did finish our trees, here's what they looked like.  I quite enjoyed myself while coloring and decorating my tree.  I need more excuses to color.




Oh, and here's a quote for you today.  Happy Wednesday!
