This busy bag is a fun learning game to practice number recognition for toddlers and preschoolers. It is two games in one!

The first game is Dice Race. The object of the game is to pick a number and cheer it on to the finish line. Start each number die on the start line in the correct lane. Roll the spare die. Whichever number is rolled gets to move up one space. Continue until someone crosses the finish line! Which number will win the race?

The second game is last one standing. This side has an assortment of numbers. Roll a die and cover that number on the playing page. You can mark it off with a washable marker (laminated so you can reuse again and again) or with other small objects such as cereal or coins. Continue until their is only one number left. That number is the winner. Which number will be the last number standing?

What is included:
- A PDF file to print
- You will need 7 dice (6 for playing pieces and one to roll)

What they are learning WHILE having fun:
- Subitizing - instant recognition of a pattern such as the dots on a die = x number. Seeing a number without having to count.
