Free Inclusive Gift Exchange Activity Printable & App

Here is a fun gift exchange idea that I simplified and adapted to make it inclusive for those who need symbols as a visual support and an adapted way to roll dice.

.

I made this visual support using the iESLp app (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/ieslp/id912953895, iPad only, iOS 8.3 or later) and have uploaded it as a free printable (1 page PDF) here on my blog: https://omazingkidsyoga.files.wordpress.com/2019/11/gift-roll-free-printable-from-omazing-kids.pdf.

Use my favorite FREE dice rolling app to avoid having dice flying all over the room and to allow almost anyone to participate: Just Dice by Code Redman Ltd, (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/just-dice/id470876937, iOS Universal, iOS 9.0 or later, no ads, no in-app purchases, can select color of background, color of dice, how many dice, tap anywhere on the screen to roll, etc…). This app is seriously awesome and is always free 😃. If you don’t have an iPhone or iPad to use this app, another idea is to use a large foam die from Dollar Tree that’s large enough for kids to hit at with their hand to roll.

.

If you own the GoTalk Now app or GoTalk Now Plus app, then head to their free Online Gallery to get a copy of a page I created with hot spots where users can tap to have the item spoken. Each die number and each instruction is a separate hot spot. Instructions for how to find and use the GoTalk Now Online Gallery can be found within the app by going to the home screen and tapping “Help” -> “Users Guide” -> pages 22-24. (Note: Unfortunately the Online Gallery can’t be accessed within the free LITE or Start versions of the GoTalk app)
