Collect the bugs
A set of bottle top bugs (0 – 12)
A set of leaves to put the bugs on (optional)
Set out the leaves with one bug on each leaf. Take turns to roll both dice and use either addition or subtraction to capture a bug. For example, if you throw a 5 and a 3 you can either add the numbers together, 5 + 3 = 8, and capture the 8 bug, or you can subtract the numbers, 5 – 3 = 2, and capture the 2 bug.
Explain your reasoning like Digit Dog.
When all the bugs have been captured, the player who has most bugs is the winner.
Which bugs are easiest to capture? Why do you think that?
