A pun on words, we know! But it’s fun to tackle some of the negative folklore around snakes. In the traditional Snakes and Ladders game, snakes send you back down the gameboard, which is not helpful. We’ve reinvented it – on a big scale! The aim of our game is to get to the end of the board without landing on a cardboard cake, which slows you down by making you miss a turn. In this version, landing on an adder tail sends you closer to your goal, as you go ‘up the adder’, unlike the traditional version. This activity can be great if you have a stall or activity on hard standing tarmac or concrete as it will help bring children in for a play and chat about snakes and why they aren’t really the bad guys.
