Here are two dice.
 
If you add up the dots on the top you'll get $7$.
 
Find two dice to roll yourself. Add the numbers that are on the top.
What other totals could you get if you roll the dice again?

 
Notes for adults

You will need two dice to play this game. The children can count the total number of spots on the dice or add them together using number facts they already know.
Record the results and explore the different totals that you can get.
Help them to find all the possible combinations.
