Snakes and Ladders online and at the kitchen table

This BBC version of the simple yet popular game, Snakes and Ladders, is visually attractive and designed for either one or two players.

You can also use the board as a springboard to design your own (a craft activity in itself, which can be as artistically easy or complex as you wish). On an educational note, I simply wrote out the numbers in each box, as that's where my kids are right now -- you might wish to color each box a different color and write the name of the color in it; or sketch an animal and write the name of it, etc.

If you wish to keep an older child's interest, you can use flash cards: get the answer right and it's your turn; wrong and you miss a turn.
