Chutes and Ladders is a terrific way for young children to learn about life’s ups and downs. Players get to climb the ladder of success as a reward for their good deeds, while having to slide down the chute as a consequence for naughty ones. The goal is to be the first player to move your child-shaped playing piece from square one to square 100 on the Chutes and Ladders game board but watch out! If you land on the square that shows you ate too much candy--Ouch!--you get a tummy ache and slide down a chute to a square a few numbers below. But if you end your turn on a good-deed square, such as helping sweep up a mess, you'll be rewarded by a ladder-climb up the board.
