Domino Number Challenge

This is a fun number activity with dominoes.

You need a set of dominoes, a pencil and paper.

Choose two dominoes and place them next to each other in a line on the table.

Treat each domino as two separate numbers and write the number on a piece of paper.

Next, mix up the dominoes.

Now, using the numbers on the paper, can you put the dominoes back in the original order again?

If that was a bit easy, you can make it more challenging:

Line up three dominoes, and write down all of the numbers in order.

Mix them up just like before, but this time add in a handful of extra dominoes.

Now, find the right dominoes to match the numbers.

You can easily make this into a game. 

Put a few dominoes in a line, write the numbers down, and mix up the dominoes.

Then, challenge a friend to find the dominoes and put them in the right order.
