What is Gross Motor?
It is big movements using parts of the body like legs, arms, and torso. This can include running, jumping, moving arms or legs, crawling, and more!.
Gross motor can be loads of fun!
Why use gross motor dice?
I like the gross motor dice because it is different from other gross motor. It changes how you do the movement with a roll of a dice.
Plus kids get movement in just by rolling the dice. And they are apart of picking what they are doing next.
Then you can add speed and numbers to the movement as well. The speed dice allow them to be a little silly with the movements.
Also great when you only have a short amount of time and want to get those wiggles out! And it is fun!
The gross motor dice have two parts the movements and the speed dice. You can use either or both together.
Your movements are bunny, two Easter Eggs, chick, painting, and jellybeans.
And the speeds are normal, slow and fast.

These are all items we used with the Easter Gross Motor Dice.
How to use the Easter Gross Motor Dice Inserts
I use the cube dice instead of the folding dice because they are easy to put in and out of the dice. And I find that the dice last a lot longer than one time.
Plus you can switch them out easily between sets. There are several gross motor dice sets that you can mix and match the as well.
You can see how easy it is to switch them out. They just slide right in and out of the dice.
Another reason that we use the cube dice is that my girls love to throw them up in the air. They are soft and don’t hurt if they throw them silly. And they stay together for a lot longer than the folding dice when we throw them.
How to use the Easter Gross Motor Dice Printable
Before we start rolling the gross motor dice. I make sure that they know the movements. I like to review them to make sure they have enough space.
Plus knowing the movements helps to avoid injury.
And while you are doing the movements kids can come you with their own version as well.
