After you and your kids make the Giant Dice Craft, no more lost dice. These over-sized cubes are fun to use and hard to lose!
How to Make the Giant Dice Craft
What You'll Need:
- Poster Board (at least 8 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches)
- Blunt Scissors
- Craft Glue
Step One: Draw the pattern shown on the poster board. (Make a bigger pattern for larger dice or a gift box.) Be sure to follow the dimensions exactly. Each square is 2 inches on each side; the tabs are 1/2 inch wide.
Step Two: Cut along the solid lines and score on the dotted lines. Scoring makes it easier to fold the poster board. To score, use a ruler to guide the point of your scissors as you "draw a line" along the dotted lines.
Step Three: Decorate the 6 squares. Make dots as on regular dice, or draw numbers, letters, fractions, or shapes.
Step Four: Make the cutout into a box by folding along the scored lines. Place glue on the tabs and tuck them inside the box to hold it together.
