Roll and Draw was a fun game for both of my children. I initially wanted my 2 1/2 year old to experience the game so that she could practice drawing lines in a fun way, but I quickly realized that my 5 1/2 year old had just as much fun with it.
a kleenex box or a different type of box to use as a die
a piece of paper to cover the box
a chalkboard, whiteboard, or piece of paper
something to write with
Wrap your kleenex box in paper to make a big die.
On each side of the die write a line (the lines I used are pictured above).
To play, roll the die and draw the line you rolled on your chalkboard (or paper).
There really isn't an end to the game. We rolled 5 times each and then switched players.
For a Challenge:
Roll 5 times and try to make a picture with what you've rolled.
Color each side of the die with a different color. Roll and use that color on your paper.
Write letters on your die instead of lines. Can you spell any words with the letters you've rolled?
Write words to roll and practice reading and writing.
