Yesterday we played Candy Land for summer reading.
But we played outdoors with no boards. We played Life-Sized Candy Land! The kids were the game pieces and they moved around the “board” in the park as I called out colors.
We also had someone reading The Gingerbread Baby by Brett and Hansel and Gretel by Marshall, a craft area for making a take-home gingerbread person, and a fabulous musician with his gingerbread friend. Kids moved from area to area as a group finished playing the game.
It took a week’s worth of prep with lots of help from all the staff and lots of helping hands that day (thank to all!). But we had no wind, a great turnout, and lots of fun, involved kids.
Who else has played a life-sized board game?
