How to play the Paper Dice Space Game
A: Print page 1 on white card for best results. Cut out the dice (young children may need some help with this).
B: Print page 2 on normal printer paper. Colour and cut the picture boxes. Paste the picture boxes over the correct words on the dice.
C. Make folds on all the dotted lines of the dice, and use glue or double sided sticky tape on the tabs to stick the sides of the dice together. This is a bit tricky and young children will need help.
D. Print page 3 on normal printer paper (or print on card and laminate if you want to re-use the boards). Give one playing board to each player. Take it in turns to throw the dice and colour a meteor above whatever the dice shows. For example, if you throw "astronaut", colour a meteor above the astronaut on the playing board. The first player to colour all five meteors for any space word wins!
