We love dice games! This cat dice game is played with one die. Use buttons, gems, blocks, or candies as game pieces. Roll the die. Cover the number that you rolled. If the number you rolled is already covered, roll again. When all of the numbers are covered, you win! This game is great for counting and number recognition.

This cat game uses two dice and game pieces. Use buttons, candies, or blocks as game pieces. Roll two dice. Cover the number that you rolled. When all of the numbers are covered, you win! This is a great time to teach the strategy of “counting on”. Show your child or students how to say the number aloud on one die and then continue counting on the next die.

This cat and yarn dice game is a fun way to introducing the concept of subtraction. I use pieces of fleece cut into circles or something circular like pom poms. I cover each ball of yarn with one.

Roll one die. Then, take away that many balls of yarn from the cat. When all of the cat’s yarn is gone, you win! You can also play the other way where you are rolling and give the cat balls of yarn.
