Most fairytales have common characters — there is the evil witch, the sly goblin, the helpful old woman and the conniving stepmother. In fairytales, these characters are either epitomes of virtue or quite the opposite.

Design a game of Snakes and Ladders using the good characters as the ladders and the bad ones as the snakes. So while a stepsister can take you 10 steps back, a prince can bring you 15 steps forward. Draw out the game on an A4 size sheet.
