Miss A(3yrs) & I played together. We took turns and she liked to add colorful petals to the flower. We used a dice with dots, you could also use the dice with numbers on them to build number recognition skills. It was more easy for A to count and place pastas than to point and count the dots. We played along until we covered all the numbers on the dice.
