Keep your calendars for games

Snakes and Ladders is a favourite family board game, and now you get to enjoy it for free! Kids love to play Snakes and Ladders, instead of buying a new game, make your own boards - use your old calendars.
They already have squares and numbers printed on them, calendars are perfect for board games. Each time your kids sit down to play a game a new person can draw up the snakes and the ladders or they can share the task. This makes it a different game every time.

Use your existing dice and counters (or buttons)and you own a new and unique version of the game and you haven't spent a cent.


What other board games can a calendar make up ...

Can you imagine how many ladders the kids would put on the game and how few snakes LOL
Those bigger wall calendars would be the best but I guess you can use the smaller ones for games in the car, just sit it on a tray.

I think that smaller ones for travel would be awesome. My kids used to play that game all of the time.
