Activity

Exercise...with Dice!

What You Need:

  • 2 Styrofoam blocks, large
  • Paper
  • Markers
  • Tape
  • Clear adhesive film (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Measure and cut down pieces of paper to fit each side of both styrofoam boxes. This will require 12 sheets, one for each side of each dice.
  2. Have your child come up with six different ways to move around. Examples could be: run, bear crawl, tip-toe, tumble, skip, etc.
  3. Using a marker, encourage your child to write one action on each piece of paper. Have them accompany the action word with a drawing depicting the action.
  4. Have your child glue the action words to a cube, one on each of the 6 sides.
  5. Now, tell your child to print numbers 1-6 on the other cut pieces of paper. Make sure that there is one number per sheet of paper.
  6. Then, have little learners draw dots under the numbers to represent each number.
  7. Ask your child to glue the number sheets to six sides of the other die.
  8. Go outside to a nice open area where kids can move around without rocks or hard surfaces.
  9. Create an imaginary boundary in the form of a circle.
  10. Encourage your child to roll both of the dice and have them do the action word as many times around the imaginary circle as listed on the number cube. For example, if the action cube lands on "Skip" and the number cube lands on "2", your child would skip twice around the imaginary circle.

Each player should take a turn rolling the dice. Play for as long as you like. The objective of the game is to follow directions and have fun!
