It is still raining..and we are still looking for stuff to do on a rainy day! Thought it might be fun to try a board game with the twins. Twister was a success (minus the right and left) but to be honest we have not played in in a few days now. I thought it would be a good time to try Snakes and Ladders. OK..they have no concept of numbers and cannot count…they know 1-10 by rote because they have heard other kids counting and also, we tend to count things like steps as we climb. But anyway, i decided to go ahead with it.
The next hitch was the board…most boards in the market are pretty small..a square foot at the most…too small right? i figured that those were not going to work for the two year twins and so i went out and got a nice long sheet of canvas and pulled out my acrylic paints. About 2 hours later we had our own bright and happy snakes and ladders board.
We decided to use tiny cars are counters and started our game. Nish absolutely loved it and we played about 6 rounds straight…Sid kept getting distracted and running off with the board like a cape behind him. or he decided to flop onto it and take a pretend nap.
But it seems to have worked well and we played again this morning and afternoon (we meaning nish, me and sid only part of the time).
