After playing, kids can make their very own DIY spinners and dice with the PRINTABLE CRAFTIVITY TEMPLATES! The game is suitable for 3 - 7 year olds.

You or the children can decide how many lines a player must complete to win the game. For a quick game, have players complete 1 or 2 lines to win. For a long game, they must complete the whole card. My kids loved this game so much they insisted on completing the whole card!
You can see a video of the game in action here in our Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
If you are using this game to teach English as a Second Language, maximize speaking practice by encouraging kids to say “I feel happy, sad, etc” every time they spin or throw an emotion.
