A few months ago, I was on a sewing kick and decided to make Channing my own version of "chutes and ladders" (or "snakes and Ladders" as it's called in Australia). I decided to make it only 20 squares long as Channing had never played a board game before and I wasn't certain that too many more squares would keep his attention.
Snails and flowers are not really "boyish" however I like them and thought it would be cute! He likes it too by the way :-)
Here is the finished product.
You play it the same way as the original game........flowers go up.......
.......and snails go down.
The playing pieces are bees.
To win the game, the bees have to get to the hive (with the correct number of spaces).
I backed the whole thing with material and ribbon (just like the car mat) so the bee playing pieces get rolled up inside and then you tie it all together. We also use a really big dice that I bought at the teacher store to play with.
Hope it inspired you! If you make one, I'd love to see it :-)
