Click on the image below to download your copy and follow the instructions for assembly included.
Once printed, cut out the dice and crease on all black lines.
The flaps should be folded to the inside, and the dice will kind of come together once all of the lines are creased.
You can choose to glue the flaps together or assemble the dice into a cube and tape the edges. While tape doesn’t look as clean, I find it to be the easiest and least frustrating option for my kids.
Print off as many copies as you like, and make some for friends!
What a great way to practice gratitude with kids.
