## Penny Dice Game

Partners pool together 20 (or more) pennies. They take turns rolling the die and picking up as many pennies as indicated on the die until all of the pennies have been picked up. To pick up the last pennies, the number on the die must match the number of pennies remaining. Either the player with the more pennies wins the game, or the partners flip a penny to determine whether the player with more or fewer pennies wins. HEADS: The player with more pennies wins. TAILS: The player with fewer pennies wins.

## Bunny Hop

Children practice counting up and back on a number line by playing the bunny hop game. Each player needs a number line and a bunny marker. Players take turns rolling the die and moving the bunny the number of spaces shown on the die. Both players hop to the carrot (20) by rolling the exact number. Then they hop back to the bunny's hole (0) by rolling the exact number. The first player to get to the carrot and back to the bunny hole wins.

## Top It

This game is for two placers. You can use a regular deck of cards, just remove the J,Q,K and A cards. Each player takes a card from the top of the pile, turns it over and says the number on the card. The player who has the larger number takes both cards. If the two cards show the same number, each player takes another card from the top of the pile. The player with the larger number then takes all of the cards facing up. The game is over when all of the cards have been taken. They player with more cards wins!
