A Roll of the Dice

During a recent stay with my Mum, I was reminded of a game my sister and I played as children with my Nan. She had created a large dice by sticking spots onto an empty tissue box and each time we rolled it, we had to count the number of dots, and then jump that number. Passing on the tradition, Mum had found a real bouncy giant dice. B, in a new counting phase, loved the game and happily counted out the spots and jumped out the number. So on our return home, with a perfectly square cardboard box to hand, it took mere seconds and some big neon stickers to create our own giant dice so that the game can continue.
