Finding hands-on learning activities that are fun for kids can be a challenge at times. But I really enjoy that challenge. The latest game I’ve created for my son is really simple and perfect for LEGO loving preschoolers, and great for toddlers too!

Roll a Duplo Tower Math Game
Roll a Duplo Tower is a fun math game for toddlers and preschoolers to practice counting and fine motor skills in a playful way! With a set of basic Duplo bricks, some Duplo plates and a large die kids can race to build the tallest tower before the Duplo bricks are all gone!
To set up this game is quick and easy! I pulled all the square Duplo bricks from our bin along with two small plates. Then I scattered them all over the activity table with a large foam die and invited Caden to try to build a taller tower than me! (Hint: a little playful competition is a great motivator for reluctant kids!)
To play Roll a Duplo Tower Math Game is very simple. Players take turns rolling the die, counting out their Duplo bricks and stacking them into a tower! The player with the tallest tower when all the bricks on the table are gone is the winner!
Although my son didn’t follow the directions to build a tall tower, he still got plenty of counting practice and gets bonus points for creativity!
