Chutes and Ladders

Chutes and Ladders • this painting is sold

Chutes and Ladders is the game of rewards and consequences. As kids travel along the game path, they encounter situations that reward them for good deeds by letting them climb the ladders or punish them for misbehaving by sending them down chutes. All the while, they are learning to recognize numbers and count to 100.

Snakes and Ladders: The Western form of this game was invented in Victorian England, possibly by John Jaques of Jaques of London and was apparently adapted from the ancient Indian game "Dasapada", dating back to the 2nd century BC.

What child didn't play Chutes and Ladders while growing up!!
