These are great, thank you. We have done the cover the numbers and different variations of the draw a beetle game. in addition to these we have played "color by numbers" using a large floor dice, i give them a choice of pictures i have copied out of a coloring book, which i have numbered sections of picture 1-6 they then get to roll the dice one at a time, they pick a color for that number start coloring while i go round room, keep on rolling until they roll all six numbers and have chosen all their six colors, worked really well and finish with very colorful pictures, even residents who always say they can't color and don't join in with craft sessions joined in and really enjoyed it, does take a long time as same numbers come up but that gives them time to finish coloring the previous number.

I added my own twist to "Cover the number" to play with my grandma after we had mastered the original version. Now we roll three dice, discard one of them, and then proceed as usual. It adds a little bit of strategy ("which two dice should I pick?"), which gets my grandma to think harder; and as an added bonus, it makes the game enjoyable for me.

We also added some low numbers in the blank areas on the side of the board, as suggested in a previous post. Also, I made the boards by hand with cardboard and colored markers (using one color for the 1s, another color for the 2s, etc.), and we use beans to cover the numbers, all of which makes it a more pleasant sensory experience.

Hi, Thank you for sharing the Dice Game. Will be trying it out with our seniors. Due to COVI-19, I am also trying it out with our volunteers to play this game virtually over ZOOM.

Warmest regards
