Activity 4: Let's Play A Game!

In this interactive game, children are prompted to dress up the characters in school uniform. The game involves rolling a dice and matching the dotty dice pattern to a piece of clothing that has the same pattern on it. Then, the child has to place the clothing on the character in the correct order. The winner is the player that has dressed their character correctly, ready for school first! This is a great way to teach your child the basic principles of getting dressed.
