Polar Bear

Here is a game to keep the kids guessing. This can be played with any number of participants.

Materials: Four dice

Area: Table

Objective: Guess how many polar bears,  0 to 5.

How To Play: The leader annouces the following rules for play: “The object is to determine how many polar bears are around the ice hole. The answer will be in front of you on the table. There will be between zero and five each time.”

One staff person is the dice arranger. Arrange the dice in any random pattern; it really doesn’t matter.  The number of polar bears is actually determined by the number of fingers the staff slyly puts down next to the dice, not the arrangement of the dice.  The staff person puts their hand down on the ground next to the dice, displaying zero to five fingers. The game ends when everyone understands the trick.
