The children will need 2 dice to play this game: one =/- die (I wrote +s green and -s red), and one with numerals 1, 2, 3. They will also need playing pieces ( I used candy conversation hearts).
To Play: Players start on the caboose, and roll both dice. They will move back and forth on the train (forward for +, back for -) the number of spaces on the 1, 2, 3 die. Play continues until one player makes it to the engine.
