Snakes and Ladders


Equipment: None

Recommended Players: 10+



Split your participants into two teams. Have one person from each team sit down facing a person from the other team with their legs straight out in front of them so that their feet meet in the middle. Do this with all participants so that you have a line of pairs with enough space in between each pair to step. Make sure each pair is a similar age / height. Assign each pair a number down the line.


When you call a number, both participants will stand up and race down the line, stepping over the legs of the other players. When they reach the end they run back to the front and go over the legs of those people until they reach the spot where they started. The first person to sit down in the spot they started wins a point for their team. Call a different number. Repeat. End the game before they get bored of it so you can play it again some other time. The next time you play you can have the winner of each round draw a popsicle stick with a number on it which indicates how many points they won for their team to make it even more intense.
