At least two dice (test them in a choke tube before allowing children to play with them)
Start with one die. One person throws it, counts the dots and then performs an action that many times such as blinking, wiggling their nose, or touching their ear. For older children try having one person throw two dice, then count the dots and add them together. The participants play this game until a certain sum is reached.
This is a wonderful game to play in restaurants or while enduring long waits. While commuting, children can play by themselves, using the top of a shoebox.
