Pirate Board Game Printable
This simple board game is perfect for preschoolers. Little ones will love rolling the dice, moving their token, and seeing who wins the race to the end.
To prep this game, I suggest printing all of the pages on cardstock. Laminate the page with the tokens and the dice. Cut each of those pieces out, and assemble the dice.
Laminate the game board and tape the two pages together to create one large game board. Go over the instructions with your preschoolers, and let them go!
Simple games like this one help preschoolers strengthen several skills. First, they’ll practice counting to six. They’ll roll the dice and count the dots. Then, they’ll move their token the same number of spaces.
Older kids can work on subitizing by recognized the number of dots without counting them.
Moving their token from space to space also helps preschoolers practice one-to-one correspondence.
Playing board games helps preschoolers learn to take turns, work cooperatively, and strengthen critical thinking skills.
When you present children with fun activities such as this one, preschoolers will stay engaged and beg to play it over and over again.
