Hello Creative Kids.  Well we can’t play with all our fabulous board games at Coolbellup Library today so instead we are going to make our own.  We are going to make a Snakes and Ladders board. It’s a great game that everyone can play.

Here is what you will need:

  • Plain paper
  • A ruler
  • Pencils or textas
  • A piece of cardboard
  • Glue
  • Dice and something to use for playing pieces

Step One:  We have to create a grid for our board. Using your ruler, measure out a 20 cm square.  Draw lines every 2 cm up and down the square to create a grid with 100 squares.

Step Two: Number every square from 1 – 100

Step Three:  Draw on your ladders and then your snakes.  Put in as many as you like.

Step Four: Colour your ladders and snakes.  Colour in the square for the number 100, to show when you have won the game.

Step Five:   Cut out your game board and glue it to a piece of cardboard.

Step Six: Challenge your family to a game.

So that’s it for this week.  I hope that you enjoy making your own board game and playing it with your family.  Next week we’ll be doing some Killer Crafts.

Take care Creative Kids,
