Since Honor has now mastered color identification, I thought we’d move on to working on numbers. I figured the best way to do this would be through a somewhat art based activity because she LOVES “projects”! I quickly came up with this game one afternoon.
The Dot Dabber Dice Game!
- dot art paint dabbers
- a die
- coffee filters (any paper would work fine)
Here’s how to play … line up all the dot dabbers in a row. Have each player take one coffee filter. The youngest player rolls the die first, and then takes the dot dabber that is first in the line and dabs as many dots that are on the die on their own coffee filter.
When the players turn is over, the next person rolls the die and uses the same dot dabber on their coffee filter (that way EVERYONE gets to use all the colors!) Play continues until all the colors are used … or your coffee filter is full (depending on how long YOU want the game to go!).
It’s great because a wide age range can enjoy the game, there’s really no limit on how many players can play (solo or group play), and everyone wins! Not to mention, you end up with some really cool art!!!
or, maybe, even a HAT!
