Here is a fun (and free) printable board game for you- Under the Sea board game! Inspired by the Snakes & Ladders game, your young kiddos will love this!
Do your children or students love board games? Board games are so good for practicing a variety of skills while having fun. Exactly like this under the sea board game. Simply print and play!
How to prepare this board game:
Simply print (find the printable on our Freebies page, access instructions below) the page, laminate it or use a dry-erase pocket to protect it to be able to use it multiple times. Provide a die and some movable pieces(we used these cute sea creature stikeez). And you are ready to play Under the Sea board game!
The rules are similar to that of Snakes & Ladders, but with this Under the Sea board game, the seagrass takes you UP and the sharks take you DOWN!
Assign play pieces to each player. Start at nr. 1 and take turns to roll the die. Move that number of blocks, using the numbers on the blocks to help with direction.
If you land on seagrass, follow it upwards. If you land on a shark, the shark swallows you and you must go downwards!
To make it more fun, when you land on a block with a picture of a sea creature, act it out! Swim like a fish, make bubbles with your mouth like a fish, wiggle 8 fingers like the tentacles of an octopus…
Even though this looks like a simple game, the educational value cannot be underestimated. Number recognition, counting skills, social skills and rule-following, it all gets practiced while playing and having fun!
Have fun playing our Under the Sea Board Game with your kiddos! Have a look at our Digital Resource with an Ocean theme(more coming soon)!
