After making N is for Numbers on Monday Neevah wanted more numbers so today we played this quick dice game. I really liked the idea when I saw it on Pre-K Pages (they had used it as part of a gingerbread theme) however Neevah didn't really enjoy it as much as I thought she would.
I drew a large butterfly on a bright coloured piece of paper and wrote the numbers 1 - 6 in each wing
Neevah rolled the dice and counted the dots to find out which number she had rolled
Then she stamped the corresponding number on the butterfly with a dot/bingo marker
Even though she didn't think this dice game was lots of fun she still completed the whole butterfly. I love how this game could be used for almost any theme just by chaning the outline you draw and it is quick and simple to play. We will try this idea again in the future she may enjoy it more next time.
