Chutes & Ladders Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
I used to love this game as a kid. Actually, I can't say that because I played the Jewish version (Torah Chutes & Ladders). But honestly, it's the same idea. You take turns spinning the spinner and you travel up the game board. But watch out! If you hit a square with a chute, you're going to wind up closer to the bottom and farther from your goal (winning!). But if you hit a square with a ladder, you're moving on up!

This is a fantastic game for preschoolers. It helps to teach numbers (moving spaces), taking turns, and shows them about being rewarded for good behavior (climbing ladders) and being punished for bad behavior (sliding down the chutes). I really love how it shows exactly why the player is being rewarded or punished. For example, if you do a good deed like sweeping up a mess, you get to climb a ladder. But, if you do something bad, like eat too much candy, you slide down the chute. It's teaching behavior skills in a fun way! Reading is not required, so anyone ages 3 and up can play, which means it's only two more years until the twins can play with me. (Or maybe it's when I can play with the twins?) Luckily, up to four players can play at a time, so my hubby can get in on the fun. :-)

I popped over from the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party. With playing games being favorite activities for all grandparents and their grandchildren, and especially my grandkids and me, this would be a great addition to our game closet. :)

I subscribed to your email thru the RSS button at the bottom. I sent a funny photo to a friend with words of encouragement for a difficult day. :)
