I’m happy to say that this time my daughter didn’t cheat with her dice. Unlike the Transportation dice game we did last week…

Since these lightweight cubes need a good toss in the air to do some flipping, Shiloh was thrilled to throw her dice up and watch them fall.

She can’t read yet, so I helped her with the results of her tosses.

Even though she wasn’t cheating with the dice, she did want to shake every body part since that is what we rolled first!

Shiloh is in the process of consistently naming her elbows and knees, so I included them along with the more simple: head, foot, hand, and hips.

I did consider including b-u-t-t, but since there is so much debate in Little Kid Land about what to call our rear ends, I figured I’d avoid the drama. *wink*

Have fun wiggling, shaking, bending, twisting, lifting, and pointing with your kids!!

  1. I like this activity! The only thing I would have done is added pictures to the body parts die. Thank you for your work and sharing your talent!

  2. Our kids would love this! We need to try it out. I imagine with our four, the results would be hilarious! Thank you!
