This dice baseball game is a great fit for kids.
My boys are showing an interest in playing baseball and need help understanding the movement of the game. This dice baseball game gave them a great starting place.
If you have been here for a while, you won’t be surprised that our baseball board game uses DIY dice and a handful of counting bears. – Two of our favorite activity supplies to learn through play!
RELATED: Our activity cards have simple play prompts that you can keep on hand.
This dice baseball game is a little different than the rest that you will find on the market.
Here, we are using dice that move the players around the infield to demonstrate how a hit will affect the other baseball players on base.
When a player is on third, and a player hits a double, the third base player stays put. However, if the player hits a triple, the third base player comes home and scores a point.
Indoor games such as this inspire children to create simple activities on thier own.
I set this baseball game up, and the boys played three days straight.
They played as a Breakfast Invitation and again as they circled back for lunch.
To set up, I wrote five baseball terms on the dice. To make it, I covered jumbo dice with construction paper.
- Single (1)
- Double (2)
- Triple (3)
- Homerun (HR)
- Foul (Foul)
Next, I created a baseball game board with our paper and markers.
To the bottom right and left, I marked the game with two dugouts with team colors.
The boys took a score with tally marks.
As each counting bear crossed the home plate, and The boys marked another score. This is a great way also to reinforce number sense. Math games with dice offer so many learning opportunities in a risk-free way.
Acknowledging groups of five and ten groups is the foundation to future math skills that children cannot practice enough!
Supplies for this dice baseball game are easy breezy.
