Musical Dice


Point to the dice patterns below and children need to tell you the number. Count forwards up to 6 and backwards from 6.

You will need:

Numberblocks towers 1-6

music to dance to

a dice

family members (if possible)

Rules for Musical Dice

This game is based on Musical Bumps. Choose a Numberblocks tower. Play some music to dance to. When the music stops, roll the dice. If you have the matching Numberblocks tower, then sit down. If you don't then you can carry on dancing until your number matches on the dice. If you are playing by yourself and you're out, then choose another Numberblocks tower to carry on with the game. If extra family members are playing and they are all out, swap your Numberblocks towers and continue with the game.

Happy Dancing !!!!

Making a Dice

Make your own dice using an old box sticky dots to make the dice patterns.

Play a board game using a dice or even dominoes. Notice whether they are counting the spots on the dice or subitising the patterns (spotting the number using the pattern of the spots without counting).
