PRINTABLE :: Make a magic dice

Magic eight balls are kind of fun aren’t they? This is my free printable version of the magic eight ball – a magic dice. Looking for an opinion? Need an answer? The magic dice can help. Children will love this. Roxy is happy to spend a long time thinking up questions and rolling the dice, over and over again. Do I have to make my bed in the morning? Will I have a good day at school? Are we going to go on an awesome holiday this year? Can I have chocolate for breakfast?! Of course there are some things that the magic dice isn’t allowed to have the last word on.

Got a question to ask?  To download the free printable just click here.

Edit: Following a reader comment about the singular and plural versions of die/dice, I thought I’d add this… I did double check before I wrote the post and according to the Oxford Dictionary: “Historically, dice is the plural of die, but in modern standard English dice is both the singular and the plural: throw the dice could mean a reference to either one or more than one dice.” Tricky!

I hope you have fun with this magic dice – with or without kids – this simple idea has definitely given us lots of laughs and enjoyment.

    This is so cool! I was always a fan of the magic 8 ball as a kid, so I love this. Filing away to use when my daughter is older too.

    That’s really cute! Though it’s ‘die’ for a single one and ‘dice’ in the plural. Sorry, I’m a huge grammar nerd! I do love the nice bright colours on it. I’d make one for my son to play with, but he’d just destroy it.

      Hi Bryony, Thanks for your comment. Like you I like to be correct with my grammar, so I did double check the dice/die thing before I wrote the post. According to the Oxford dictionary:

      “Historically, dice is the plural of die, but in modern standard English dice is both the singular and the plural: throw the dice could mean a reference to either one or more than one dice.”

      I know – it’s confusing.
      Maybe when your son gets a bit older the magic dice might be something you could do with him!

        Yeah, I saw that, too: I just can’t help that it still sounds wrong to me! Though, I suppose when the OED allows it, there’s nothing else to be done. I think it’s such a relatively new change in language that people are still transitioning; hence the need to look it up and make sure that it’s okay.

        Anyway, I’m enjoying your blog!

          I know – it’s tricky when you’ve been taught something and then it changes!
