Dice Coding Game

Coding is the method of giving instructions to a computer to perform a specific task. It  teaches kids important academic skills and builds crucial soft skills like perseverance and organization. 

This game involves simple pre-coding skills where your kid has to follow some instructions while playing the game. This introduces the concepts of looping and conditionals.

What is looping?

In computer programming, a loop is a sequence of instructions that is continually repeated until a certain condition is reached.

What is conditional?

Conditional statements help you to make a decision based on certain conditions.

How to play this game?

  • You need two dice for this activity . One for counting and the other for shapes. 
  • I cut different shapes from different colored construction paper and pasted it on each side of one dice.
  • Anay had to roll both the dice together.
  • As per the shape and number rolled by the dice, He had to draw the shape accordingly.
  • If the Shape die rolled a square, he had to draw a square which is the CONDITIONAL part of this activity.
  • And, if the Number die showed five, then he had to repeat drawing the square five times. This is the LOOPING part of the activity.

If you have a younger kid you can use shape stencils or you can draw the shapes for them and ask them to color.
