12-sided dice are great for teaching children counting to 12 and can be used for older children’s addition and multiplication drills. While most dice are made out of plastic, you can make one at home out of cardstock or even paper.

Place the paper in your printer tray and print off the 12-sided dice template in the resource section of this article.

Cut out the template and fold all the white edges downwards.


Fold the die completely to form the correct shape.

Paint glue onto the white edges and press the pieces together. Let the die dry completely before using.
