King Cake Game (Craft)

This is a simple dice board game, but a lot of fun when celebrating Mardi Gras.  The real king cake is baked.  A small doll is baked into it and the one who finds the doll becomes king.

Tasha (6 years old) had a lot of fun with this game.  They use dice games a lot in school for math.

Don't have dice?  No problem!  Make some really big dice to go with the game!
