Inventing our own wonderful wintery game!

Starting out with just a blank sheet of paper and a handful of small Christmas presents, Elf Susannah and her team of maths Elves created an amazing winter boardgame. The aim of the game was to roll a die and travel along the number lines, collecting or losing presents on the way. The children drew their own numbers and invented situations that would cause them to collect or lose presents such as ‘begin with 3 presents’ and ‘too windy, lose 2’. They had so much fun inventing the rules and then playing the game. Why not make up your own game over the holidays? We’d love to see the photos of what you create.
