Immy received her first ever boardgame for Christmas. It is called Chutes and Ladders and is obviously based on the age old classic, Snakes and Ladders. We are having lots of fun introducing her to the joy of boardgames and she is doing well with taking turns and counting her moves, we are just having a little trouble staying attentive all the way to the end of the game!
Boardgames teach children so many wonderful skills – both social and thinking and reasoning skills and it is exciting to be moving into this next stage of play. I would love to hear any suggestions of other boardgames suitable for toddlers so that I can grow our collection.
I would like to welcome and thank all of the fabulous bloggers who joined We Play for the first time last week. It is always lovely to find new friends online. I must say that I felt a teeny bit jealous of all the lovely snow play taking place over on the other side of the world last week. I chose this post as my favourite for the week as I thought it was both a fabulous gift idea and I know how children love taking ownership of growing things.
A reminder to everyone who joins in, I would really appreciate you acknowledging the meme with a link back within your post. If you would also like to use the We Play button, I have now added the code to the sidebar, just over there on the right, so it is easy to grab.
