Give each six a dice, the girls take it in turns and they must roll a six to pick up a piece of the card and place it on the correct corresponding place on the card.
As the game continues you could change the rules to rolling a 2 and a 6, and then increase to a 2, 4 and 6, with the dice.
The winners are the first to complete the activity correctly.
