Cover it Up!
Materials needed: Container, one inch wooden cubes, Jumbo die with numerals 1-6, 12 square grids
(1 for each child).
Children will take turns rolling the jumbo die. They figure out the number shown, taking a matching number of cubes. Then place the cubes on the grid that they have. Players keep on playing until their grids are full.
Step 1: Player A rolls the Jumbo die and figures out the number on the card. Then, takes that many wooden cubes and places them on a grid.
Step 2: Player B and so on will each take their turns.
Step 3: The players will go on until they complete filling up the grid.
Variations: Increase the number of squares on the grid. Use numerals for greater numbers in for the Jumbo die.
