Children could be given a tub of 10p coins. They could then roll a dice and take the corresponding number of 10p coins from the tub. They could then make this into an addition to find out how much money they have altogether. The children could also be introduced to multiplication being continuous addition, so the activity could be extended to multiplication calculations.
