Don't roll a 6 game

Hi, I'm a friendly Stay at home Mum with a background in childcare. I love writing, reading and talking!

Hop, hopping, hopping on one leg, gross motor, boy, leg, movement

Ages: Any age.

Indoor or Outdoor: Either but for large movements outdoors would be safer.

Equipment/Resources: One dice. Large ones are best.

Cost: Free (unless you need to buy a dice or you could make one.)

Hop, hopping, hopping on one leg, gross motor, boy, leg, movement


1) Ask each player to pick an action or movement (eg. Star jumps, hop on one foot, run to a tree and back, touch your toes etc) they will do if they roll a six.

2) Each player then takes a turn to roll the dice.

3) If they roll a six they must do the action or movement that they selected six times.

4) That player (that just rolled a six) then gets to choose the action that the next player will do if they roll a six.

5) If they don't roll a six it's the next players turn.

6) Now try it the opposite way. So if they roll a six they don't do the action but if they roll any other number they do.

Aim: To roll or not roll a six. To get the kids playing together and to keep them active. To enhance number recognition and maths skills.

Time: Can be done for a short time or a long time. Will also depend upon how many players there are.

Players: One or more.

Hop, hopping, hopping on one leg, gross motor, boy, leg, movement

Why?: It's a great way to enhance number recognition and maths skills. It doesn't cost much, it can be played alone or with others and it is very inclusive.

Additions: As I mentioned earlier you can do it the opposite way. Perhaps add another number to roll as well as a six. What about keeping a tally of how many times a six is rolled?
