- Cut circles of felt for the dots. I found it easiest to use a pen cap and ink pad to stamp the felt and cut perfect circles.
- Glue the dots onto the blocks. A fact my son taught me that I didn't know, is that the dots on the opposites sides of dice, always add up to 7.
- Place 6 dots on the top and 1 dot on the bottom. Work around the sides placing 3 dots, 2 dots, 4 dots, and 5 dots.
