Rainbow Puzzle game

I made a fun little game for spring with rainbows and words.  I call it the rainbow puzzle game, and you can download it for free (you can also find it in the shops).  You have to roll 3 dice first, a number dice, a color dice, and a word dice.   You remember what you rolled.  Scooter board over to the rainbow puzzle pieces and get the correct number of pieces of the right color of the rainbow.  Then you {Read More}
