Monster dice learning and fun party game

We have been working with numbers and have made some dice with numbers on them in the past. "J" loved playing with them so I thought it would be fun to make our own dice game the kids could play with and tie into Halloween.

So "J" and "C" sat and painted the dice orange. Then when "C" was napping "J" and I placed the eyeballs on the dice and I wrote Halloween action words on the dice.

They really had a great time playing the game.

I got the wood dice at a craft store(A.C. Moore) and used a 50% off coupon 2 different times or you can print 2 coupons and have someone go with you, get both that trip.

Total cost of this project was $4.00 and the nice thing is it is reuseable.

This would be a really fun game to play at a kids Halloween Party as well.

The kids would roll the dice and then they had to do what the dice said, the number of times it landed on.

This is great for helping read and count the eyes on the dice.

Words on the dice:
Pumpkin kick
Screwcrow skip
Witch jump
Spider crawl
Cat walk
Ghost hop
