Board Game – Human Size

Board Game – Human Size
board game
Bored? Make a human sized board game and play! We made our board game out of pillows. We used 10 pillows and rolled the die to move the corresponding number of spaces.
When you get to the end, you win!

Even N (18 months) had fun walking from pillow to pillow.
You can also use felt pieces, stuffed animals, blocks to stand next to, etc.
Tip: When you get close to the end ask your child, “How many do you need to win?” or “What do you need to roll to win?”.

Oh fun! For my older kids who are learning languages, they can count in that language as they hop from pillow to pillow. Peanut- age 7 is taking Spanish and Sunshine- age 9 is taking French. Little Man- he can learn his English numbers! lol Thank for the idea. Oh, another fun variation- leap frog from pillow to pillow or use homemade lily pads. :)

Very interesting. Could even make them roll two and add them before moving...
