• each child rolls the color die or spins the spinner
      • if die shows 'green', then that child uses a marker to cover the 'green' balloon on their game card
      • next child takes a turn and so on
      • game continues until all colors are covered
      • if a child spins or rolls a color they already have, they miss a turn
      • older children may enjoy playing more competitively to see who can finish their card first
