How to Play the Roll a Unicorn Game
This can be a single player game, but it’s more fun when others join in.
If you are a classroom teacher, you can put your students in groups or with partners to play the game.
Ideally, each player should have dice. Each player will also need playdough in rainbow colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple).
Take turns rolling the dice and drawing. Each player will roll six times.
Roll One: Red hair for the unicorn’s mane.
Roll Two: Orange hair for the unicorn’s mane.
Roll Three: Yellow hair for the unicorn’s mane.
Roll Four: Green hair for the unicorn’s mane.
Roll Five: Blue hair for the unicorn’s mane.
Roll Six: Purple hair for the unicorn’s mane.
The first roller to finish the unicorn’s rainbow mane wins the game!

This file includes:
- Roll a Unicorn Playdough Game (instructions above)
- Unicorn Playdough Mat
This option includes mane guide lines to help your student add a magical mane to the unicorn.
- A unicorn without guides, so your student can imagine and build a mane. It does have guide lines to help add the unicorn’s horn.
