How To Play Hopscotch


photo credit: rachaelvoorhees

Hopscotch is a great, classic game that can be enjoyed with friends—the more the merrier! You get to jump around, throw things, and just enjoy being outside in the beautiful summer weather.

Draw a hopscotch pattern, like the one in the photo above on the ground with chalk or use masking tape on a floor and number each square in order. Give each player has a marker such as a stone, shell, etc.

Stand at the beginning and toss your marker in the first square. Hop over square 1 (you must skip any square that has a marker in it) to square 2. Hop through the grid on one foot unless there are two squares side-by-side, then you jump landing with one foot in each square. Hop to the end, jump and turn around 180° without leaving the grid, and hop back. Pause in square 2 to pick up the marker, and out. Toss the marker in square 2, hop through the same way, then square 3 and so on.

Have fun!! 🙂
