I have always been a big fan of getting kids moving! I love having different ways to do gross motor. And the gross motor dice are great for that!
Today we have New Years’ Themed Gross motor dice for moving around while having fun with new year themes.
I always get loads of requests for more because kids love doing the dice!

Things to use with the New Year’s Gross Motor Dice
How to use the New Years Gross Motor Dice Inserts
I have always loved the cube dice for the dice. There is a set you can cut out and fold but the cube dice works so much better. I can change things up when I want.
You start by cutting out the dice inserts. There are six of them.
Then you put them in the dice. This is super easy and simple to do. I have my girls switch out the dice all the time! They also like to mix it up with other sets.
Another reason that we do the cube dice is that we love to throw the dice. And those dice have hit the ceiling so many times but the cube dice just take it!
How to use the New Years Gross Motor Dice
I always start off by introducing the movements before we do the dice. This lets you make sure they know all the movements and they know how much space they need between each other.
Fireworks: You jump as high as you can keep your body straight and arms up in the air.
Fireworks Explode: You jump up and extend your arms and legs out wide like you are a big firework in the sky.
Party Whistle: You roll across the floor and roll back.
Confetti: You fall to the floor slowly with big arm movements.
Balloon: You lay on the floor and lift your arms and legs up at the same time to float.
Clock: You start still and move your arms around in circles.
Once you have the movements down then you can change things up. You can add the speed dice. You could also add a number dice. You can get the number dice here.
It has folding and dice insert options. I like that I can reuse the dice inserts over and over.
