We have a new activity to add to our gross motor dice collection! My daughter loves pulling out the dice throughout the day and “rolling” them. While she is learning about weather terms, she is also getting some great gross motor play in which is perfect for when she can’t get outside to play! This free printable weather gross motor dice for kids is great for brain breaks, circle time or when you just need to keep the kids occupied for a few minutes.
To prep: Print the dice from the download at the end of this post. Then, use scissors to cut out the cube template.
Fold the cube template on the inside lines and tape it into a cube. I find it helpful to put additional tape on the outside of the cube to give the dice a little bit more weight and to last longer. You can also print on card stock for a more durable cube.
To use: Roll the cube and act out whatever phrase is rolled.
Or if your kids are like my daughter, turn the cube until you see a picture you want to do and gently place it on the floor….
Note to self… never play Yahtzee against this girl…
