Exercise with Dice Activity for Kids

Exercise with Dice is a fun activity for kids.  It’s simple:

  1.  Grab dice from one of your games.
  2. Print the exercise activity pdf for this dice game (see below).
  3. Set a timer.
  4. Roll the dice for each activity, write the number and follow the exercise.  Remember to count out loud especially with younger children!

Do this activity together! It will make it twice a fun and memorable; playing and exercising with your kids will set an impactful example whether it’s short period of time or a long period of time.

Want to make it more fun?  Or, maybe s-t-r-e-t-c-h the game to last a little longer?

Here are few variations to play:

  • First roll one die and determine how many times you are going to do the chart before beginning. (One doesn’t count)
  • Roll more than one dice, add the total and then follow along with the chart.  You’re including math along the way.
  • Do a countdown.  Roll 2 die, add them and go through the chart recording the activities and completing the exercises in each square.  Then roll one die, subtract it from the original total and do the activities in each square again.  You’re including addition and subtraction while doing at least two rounds of activity.

You can print and repeat as many times as you would like!
