The kids can’t get enough of board games. Lately, their favorite games are Candyland and Chutes and Latters. However, Mom can’t stand playing those over and over! That’s why I made a human board game.
The best thing about this game is its limitless applications. We also get fresh air and some exercise while learning math concepts like one-to-one correspondence and real number values. You can make your board game as complicated as you think your kids can handle by adding more elements like letter sounds or words.
Here is how we played…
First, draw your board with chalk or masking tape. You could make a fun shape or do a spiral. I put red Xs in some of the boxes as “lose-a-turn” spots. You could put a +1 or -1 in some of the boxes for “move ahead” or “move back” – spots to include addition and subtraction into the game. Next, choose your counter. We made a die from a box, construction paper, and tape. The object of the game is simple; first one to the end Wins!
Now, lets PLAY!
Roll the Die.
Celebrate, because learning is fun!
Don’t miss a thing!
