My school's math coach suggested a fantastic use for these [tiny food containers]. Our district's math curriculum includes many games where the students have to roll two dice.
Problem: Sometimes it drives me crazy when the kids roll their two dice and they fly to opposite sides of the room…
Solution: Roll the dice in this cute container! (There really is enough room for the dice to roll inside there.)
Such a simple, great idea for younger kids, or for travel games. By the way, Casey found a package of eight containers for a dollar at her local dollar store.
Speaking of games, did you know veteran Parenthacker Adrienne (author of many hacks here, and of Baby Toolkit) also does a podcast about board games? She and her husband, Jim, are the hosts of Great Big Table, all about the diversity of board games out there. Check out this post about great games for kids.
