Rules of Hopscotch
- Hopscotch grid
- Hopscotch is a good game for counting, coordination, balance, and improving physical agility (and it's a lot of fun, too).
- Look for a hopscotch grid at the local schoolyard or draw one on your sidewalk with chalk.
- Give your child a marker (a small chain works well as a marker), show her how to throw it onto each consecutively numbered square, and have her hop on one foot to the end of the grid and back again, being careful not to hop in the square where the marker lays.
