Greetings, Learning Expressions Readers!
Do you have trouble finding appropriate games for your tiniest tots? Most games are designed for children who are at least three years old—but Roll & Play™ is a simple game designed for children as young as 18 months. So how do you play this with your little one? Read on to find out!
At first the Roll & Play just looks like a soft, brightly colored cube. But it also comes with a pack of cards (that are split between six skill categories) and a handy built-in pocket to store the cards when playtime is over. Each color on the cube corresponds with a category – yellow is for emotions, purple for body parts, green for animal sounds, blue for colors, orange for counting, and red for actions. With eight cards in each category, there’s no limit on the ways you and your little ones can explore.
The rules of Roll & Play™ are simple and intuitive. To get started, you give the cube a roll and see which color faces up. Then you flip a card that matches that color and act out the silly skill on the back of the card. Each card has a written direction as well as an adorable illustration for you and your children to follow. Here are a few examples from each category:
Yellow/Emotions: Make a scared
Purple/Body Parts: Pinch your nose.
Green/Animal Sounds: Quack like a duck.
Blue/Colors: Find something blue.
Orange/Counting: Hop 4 times.
Red/Actions: Play peek-a-boo.
We love that this soft plush cube is easily adaptable to fit any child’s needs, from counting and identifying sight words to simply matching colors. Your child will develop color and image recognition skills, gross motor skills, basic reading comprehension, and learn to follow simple instructions. The game requires no setup and cards are easy to act out alone or with a group. For a game that will have you grinning, giggling, and sometimes even roaring like a lion, look no further than Roll & Play™.
