Roll and Play is a favourite for us here at Starfish. It is a marvellous gross motor and action game and perfect for 2 players or even a large group.
Simply toss the plush cube, whichever coloured side faces up – and choose the matching colour card. Then perform the task or activity shown.
The activities are spread out across 6 categories: Emotions (eg make a sleepy face), Body Parts (eg pinch your nose), Animal noises (eg quack like a duck BUT you could add in that they also have to do animal walks at the same time), Colours (eg find something blue BUT they have to jump or hop to collect to touch the item), Counting (eg stomp 6 times) and Actions (eg give a high five).
Roll and Play is a favourite with younger children, but you could easily add or preface cards with more difficult actions, movements or mimes to adapt the game for older children. I love that the cards are stored in a pocket on the dice itself – so practical and convenient.
It is recommended for 18mth+ and for 2 or more players. Even a large group (or 2 teams) could easily play this game.
The task cards
Yellow – Emotions: make a sad face, make a sleepy face, make a silly face, giggle and laugh, make a happy face, make a surprised face, make an angry face, make a scared face.
