It’s Day Four of our Daily Activity Challenges! Yesterday’s Floating Pots O’ Gold was a success, and the kids actually stuck around to make a few more aluminum boats! This next game is a fun one, so get as many people as you can to play.
Activity Challenge #4: The ‘100’ Game!
The second activity is a game that can be played by anyone who can write the numbers 1-100. A group of three or more is needed for this game, and be warned…it can get a little loud! But, it will also bring smiles and laughter.
- One piece of paper per player
- One pencil/pen/marker (to share)
- One six-sided die
Object of the Activity: To be the first player to write all the numbers, 1-100, by ones.
How to Play:
To play the game, every player needs a piece of paper in front of him/her. The pencil and die are in the center of the players. The game begins with the die being passed around the circle until a player rolls a six. If a player rolls a six, he/she can begin writing the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…etc. on his/her paper. The die is still being passed around to the other players who are not writing the numbers. As soon as another player rolls a six, the player that has been writing the numbers has to stop immediately, hand the pencil to the player that rolled a six, and now that player starts writing the numbers oh his/her piece of paper. If a player who has already rolled a six rolls it again, he or she will continue the numbers from where he/she left off. The first player to write all the numbers up to 100 wins!
Here is a little video on how to do it!
