Dice for Preschooler Movement

Dice for Preschooler Movement

Who here has an active preschooler?

I can assure you that one thing preschoolers (and moms) need to do is MOVE.

For us, sometimes it can be as simple as heading out for a hike, or a couple laps around the house. Other times, it needs to be more involved. 

This game had my preschooler entertained for a long period of time! (preschooler time that means over 20 minutes), AND he has asked to play more than once. - Always a parenting win! 

In honor of keeping up the DIY dice momentum with Susie from, Busy Toddler, I have created yet another DIY dice game. You can see our original dice game here.
