Printable Dominoes Activity for Kids

Printable Dominoes for Kids

Whether you headed to the cabin on last time for some end-of-summer camp­ing or sim­ply want your preschooler to get a jump start on play­ful learn­ing, these sim­ple shape domi­noes are just the thing.

Print­ing Out The Domi­nos
Start by down­load­ing the print­able domi­noes tem­plates (down­load front here, down­load back here). Print out all three sheets of the front of the domi­noes on a thick card stock (I used heavy water color paper to add some texture).

Once you have all three domino fronts printed, turn them over and print onto the backs using the domino back PDF. (If you want a more per­ma­nent ver­sion, you could even affix the tops to card­board or wood rec­tan­gu­lar tiles, using Mod Podge, and then affix the back pat­tern to the other side).

Once the backs and fronts of the domi­noes are printed cut them out on the thin lines. You are now ready to play!

Game Play

  • Give each player 5 domino cards, then place the rest of the cards face down on the table.
  • The youngest player goes first by plac­ing any domino card face up in the cen­ter of the table.
  • Going clock­wise, the next player checks their hand to see if they have a card that has a coor­di­nat­ing shape to add. If so, they will then place it on the table touch­ing the shape that it matches. If not, they will then have to draw one from the cen­ter pile. If a match is made, it can be played. If not, the turn is over and goes to the next person.
  • Con­tinue in this same fash­ion until one of the play­ers had used up all of their domi­noes. This player is then the winner!

This has been such a great go to game for my kids. They can even insti­gate and play it on their own which is great for me! And it’s per­fect for my three year old who is prep­ping for preschool. We com­pletely love it!
