The human game board is so simple – yet so fun!
A game pathway is created with laminated sheets of construction paper.
I made “stones” that are leading to the Red Goblets.
The beautiful thing is that the path can be set up anywhere in any configuration.
I like to start with 2 -4 players. Each player picks a game piece (a friend).
The friend moves the number of spaces the dice thrower rolls.
The children LOVE watching the “human” game pieces moving along the pathway.
The first “human” game piece to the Red Goblet wins! In this round – it was a close one!
The children love to design the pathway as well. . .
What a fun idea, Sally! I love this!!
Great idea Sally! I can’t wait to try this.
What do you use for the red goblets? Thanks for posting. This looks fun!
Really – you can use anything. It is the goal for traveling down the pathway. I have a little story about the stolen goblet from the castle. The Kings and Queens (game pieces) are off to find it.
I also do this with The Three Bears – you can adapt it to any story or idea.
I love your human game board idea and have been using it when we study Goldilocks (Find Goldy!). Do you happen to have a story or ‘theme’ that accompanies this one?
This time of year I love bringing the Kingdom of Kindness with the Kings and Queens of Hearts. I weave stories of kindness and bravery and this is often the pathway to the golden goblet of Kindness. I could not find my golden goblet so it is a red goblet. It could be a jewel, a heart – whatever fits your main story.
I love this idea. Just wondering how many pieces you typically lay out.
Depends of the age of the children. I usually start with a 12-20 space human board to see how they manage it. I had a class that made their own game board pieces and made the game board go out the door and down the hallway!! It was a riot! Start small and see what unfolds!
