Games have always been a big part of our family life. When the kids were little, I used to play all sorts of fun board games with them. We would race to see who could build the tallest tower out of blocks, or see who could make the longest train out of our wooden railway set.
As they got older, we started playing more complex games like Monopoly and Scrabble. We would spend hours around the table laughing and joking as we tried to outwit each other.
Even now, the kids still love playing games with me when they come home from college. I think it’s one of the things that keeps our family so close. Whenever we get together, we always find time for a few games – it’s just a tradition that we all love!
This Roll a Cupcake (or Build a Cupcake Game) is ideal for children of all ages and is especially great for preschool kids. It’s simple to set up and can be played alone or with multiple people.

Then, cut out all of the various cupcake pieces, toppers, and liners. This is also an excellent time to have your kids practice their scissor skills. Tape or glue the die together – or use regular dice from another game.

Different Ways to Use this Roll a Cupcake Game
You can use this game in different ways depending on the age and ability of the child.
First to Build a Cupcake Wins:
In this version of the game, each player receives his or her own cupcake mat. There are two methods to play this competitive game:
#1 You’ll need one die for each player. Everyone starts at the same time and builds the cupcakes as quickly as possible, rolling his or her own die and combining the pieces. The first person to assemble a complete cupcake will be the winner.
#2 The game is played with just one die and everyone takes turns rolling the die. This slows down the game and make it more easier for younger children to play.
It’s important to know that in this scenario, “lose a turn” means the player gives up his or her chance to choose a cupcake part the next time the die is passed. The first one to finish his or her cupcake wins!
