Why board games like snakes and ladders make great playground markings
Our extensive range of playground markings includes a good selection of fun and stimulating games, many with an extra element of learning. This is a benefit of games, as they can teach children in an entertaining environment.
Overall, board game markings can provide a level of familiarity with shapes, numbers and colours – as well as coordination and a good level of physical activity. The specific benefits of snakes and ladders markings include the following:
- Numeracy: Mathematics is fundamental to a child’s education, and giving them a game where they can practice counting can help this. It can provide young children in particular with an acquaintance to these concepts before they enter the classroom, which puts them at a distinct advantage.
- Social skills: Games are an effective way for children to socialise with one another. They have friendly interactions in a fun setting, but they can also develop a healthy spirit by playing with one another in teams or as individuals. Snakes and ladders is good for playing alone or in groups.
- Physical activity: By using snakes and ladders markings that go to a high number, again beneficial for numeracy skills, children can gain a significant amount of physical activity. The open-ended nature of the game also means some rounds may also provide more exercise than others.
A board game in a play area is a compelling part of the schoolyard for children. Seeing children hopping along a snakes and ladders playground marking may look deceptively play-like. However, while there is an element of this, there is a lot more to it than that.
As a fun way to familiarise children with numeracy, snakes and ladders is a popular alphabet and numbers marking in many playground designs. As a teacher, it can also improve your experience in guiding young minds towards grasping important mathematical concepts in the classroom.
Snakes and ladders can also add a sense of adventure to the playground for children. Their imaginations are active and with markings that have vibrant colours and cartoon snakes, it is sure to be a consistent draw for children.
