Games pieces for gameboards?

I wanted to use the game boards for some of my task cards. What have you all found that works good for students to use for games pieces to move along the board? Thanks!

used old game pieces from games; coins; dried beans; different colored counters; basically anything I can find that has some discernible difference. I have two containers--one with dice and one with game pieces.

Teddy bear counters work well too!

You can make your own gameboards very easily. Just trace circles or squares into a path across a file folder. I like to add some stickers or graphics to add some visual appeal to them. You can then add the go back 2 spaces, roll again, etc onto several spaces.

I have also used those sticker-dots on posterboard for game boards.

As for pieces, counters (teddy bear, dino, etc.), plastic coins, soda caps (could put pictures on them), small kids' meal toys, and color tiles have all worked for me.

http://www.toolsforeducators.com/boardgames/ this is a good site to use ones they have already created or you can creat your own. You can also Google printable game boards and you will find a variety of sites where you can creat your own.

I have the kids save soda and water bottle tops. You get lots of good colors and you are recycling!

teeny erasers

I use the teeny erasers that come in many shapes (balls, fish, stars, animals, etc.) They seem practically worthless as erasers but have worked well as game markers!

I have a pencil box full of old game pieces

and a couple different game boards from games I've bought at yard sales or thrift stores. I salvage the usable parts and throw out the rest.

A coworker also has a cool idea. She prints out the game boards from the internet and put them on a cookie sheet. The kids use those small colored magnets as game pieces. They are sorta like this:

I use the lids of dried up markers as game pieces.
