Use neon colors for your lawn yahtzee dice to make them stand out!

Allow enough time (24 hours) for your blocks to dry before you paint the dots.

Use a foam brush to paint your wood blocks, making sure to cover them completely.

Next, use your circle foam brush and saturate it with black paint. You can use a picture of dice, or an actual dice to guide where to place your dots. Place your dots on each side of your dice.

Using your round foam brush, add the black pips to your dice.

Remember, the opposite sides of the dice always add up to 7. 1-6, 2-5, 3-4.

Remember: the opposite sides of the dice always add up to seven!

After painting your dots, allow at least 24 hours of drying time.
