Learning anything is more fun when you turn it into a game. To help Littlest work on learning his left and right I created this fun dice rolling/sticker game for him.
I started by taking a large sheet of paper and tracing his hands. Then I turned a large styrofoam block we already had into a large dice. I used some bright orange duct tape to mark three sides of the dice with an ‘L’ and the other three sides with an ‘R’. The extra large dice was great because it got his whole body involved in the game. But any sized dice could be used for the game, just use some tape to cover the sides.
Littlest rolled the dice and then ran over to his paper and placed a sticker on either the right or left hand depending on what he rolled.
At the end of the game he counted up how many stickers ended up on each hand to see which side was the ‘winner’.
The game was also a good chance to talk with Oldest Twin about probability! It’s nice when I can use one activity to teach them both something.

Thanks, Lisa! I was quite impressed with how long he played!
