Enjoy spring with a fun-filled, adapted board game!

Spring brings new life and many special holidays to celebrate. As the days get longer and warmer, the animals come out to play and the fields start to burst with color. This is the time when farmers start planting their crops and get ready for the growing season. In this adapted board game, kids will work on number recognition, counting forward, sequencing, and one-to-one correspondence as they take in the many sights, sounds, and scents of the season!

This adapted board game for spring is inclusive and it’s FREE to download and play!

Playing the adapted board game for spring

This is a “Chutes and Ladders” style game. Players move around the board from 1-10, 1-20, or 1-25. Choose the board that best meets the player’s math skill level. As players land on each circle, they identify and name the number.

This board game targets these skills:

  • Number recognition
  • Counting forward
  • Sequencing
  • One-to-one correspondence
  • Following directions
  • Taking turns
  • Dealing with disappointment

Required materials

  • Game board(s) (provided), printed (and laminated, optional)
  • Player tokens (from other game boards, mini toys, or make your own!)
  • Hook and loop dots (suggested for players requiring more stability with the game board, add dots to each of the board game circles and underneath player tokens)
  • Die, spinner, or popper (choose what works best for the player)
  • Communication methods or devices the child uses (including ASL, low- or high-tech AAC, etc.)
