I think this was one of the most fun things I have created from foam so far. I bought some yellow foam dice from the dollar store and carved from there. These are the steps I took to create the Oogie Boogie Dice.

Outline Cut Out
I took a pencil and drew out the skulls for each square. I used this template to get each square just right. The first one I tried to use just the x-acto knife to cut it all out. Found the holes were really wonky and it didn’t work right. My husband then came up with the brilliant idea of using a Dremel tool. Since we have one and a big set of attachments. My thought was why didn’t I think of that duh! It went a lot smoother once I used it. I found using the x-acto knife to cut around the circles first before using the Dremel helped keep me in the lines.
Paint The Oogie Boogie Dice
The last step is painting the Oogie Boogie dice. You will want to paint the holes black and the other parts red. If you look at this diagram it helps. At least this is how I did mine 🙂
A Game My Son Created
My son decided to create a game out of it. It’s kind of similar to Oogie Boogie when the dice land on snake eyes with Santa 🙂
Take one dice and roll for each person. If it lands on anything but 2 you are safe. If it lands on 2 you are out. The last person to make it not landing on 2 wins!
