C and I have been building mazes from our Red Rods (they are number rods, we don't have red rods so they are doubling up on their purpose), he loves them.
Many days of the week there is a maze somewhere on the floor. For some reason on this particular day the kids decided to make it a game board. Obviously not its' intended purpose but they were not misusing the pieces and I was more than happy to see them using the materials for more than just what they are intended for.
They used their dice and small animals as counters. Each red/blue section was one space on the game board. First to the centre was the winner. If you landed on someone else they had to move back one space. I think I heard a few other rules being thrown around but that was the general gist of it.
Later they came back and added the Pink Tower to the game. I obviously didn't get any photo's of that at all and too be honest I can't really remember how they incorporated it either.
Simple and fun is often the best. :)
