Aboriginal Snakes and Ladders Game

The Walkabout Aboriginal design game mat makes multicultural education fun and engaging. Teach ideas about Aboriginal culture the way all kids love to learn - with play! Let this Indigenous interpretation of ‘Snakes and Ladders’ get your children using all their senses. Move around the room to play on a large floor game mat, or share a tabletop version with a friend.

As the game unfolds your players will vie for the 'Walkabout' spaces where their special cultural knowledge shoots them forward. If they're unlucky, they'll land on a 'Sacred Site' and must go back to learn respect. This game is suitable for 2-4 players, for ages 3 and up, and includes 1 dice.

Recycled Mats stocks a wide range of unique cultural mats, doormats and educational games just perfect for bringing colour and quality multicultural content into any school, kindy or home. 

The Walkabout game mat is the creative design of respected elder and Indigenous graphic designer Uncle Barry Watson. Learn more about Indigenous Community Elder, Uncle Barry Watson, in this video interview we did with him.

The Snakes and Ladders game art is by Indigenous Artist, De Greer-Yindinmincarlie. Learn more about Indigenous Artist De Greer-Yindimincarlie in this video interview we did with her.

What a fab game, the kids just love it. It encourages us to have discussions around what are important local sacred sites and opens up discussions on many levels about what’s important to each of us as a family, culture and community. Thank you for creating such a lovely resource
