You need some chalk or tape if you are inside to make the hopscotch board. You can write numbers 1-10 in the boxes. Throw a stone, bean bag or other marker to a square (usually in sequence). Then jump and hop to the square to retrieve the marker. Turn around, and return without dropping the object. Only 1 foot per square permitted. Alternate players and keep playing until you have completed all the squares.
New Hopscotch Holiday Twist:
Instead of numbers, use holiday designs- a christmas tree, candy cane, snowman, dreidel, party hat. You can also write holiday related words such as lights, party, reindeer, santa, or presents to name a few.
After the child takes a turn, they must write down or draw the picture on a piece of paper of their square. It helps track what square they did and practices writing at the same time!
Use construction paper or rug squares to "shuffle" the squares before each game.
Use holiday or seasonal themed markers like jiggle bells or dredeils. Or refer to colored bean bags by seasonal terms like: "reindeer brown"; "carrot-nose orange"; "holly green" etc.
