Dominoes is a family game played by groups of people of upto 8. It involves a lot of counting, organizing etc.
These skills are essential for your child’s growth and overall development. The original version may be a bit complicated for these young minds. However, we can tweak the game a bit to make it a fun and learning experience for them.
You can either purchase the game or also make this game with a few items that are readily available. If you are interested in making the game at home, here is what you need to do.
Cut the chart paper into 28 small rectangles and divide each piece into two partitions in the middle. Do not cut along the partitions.
Leave the last unused piece untouched.
By playing this game, children can learn to count and plan their moves so that they can earn more points. The most obvious and prominent learning would be to count, add the dots and group them correctly when they place the cards adjacent or perpendicular to each other.
