Here is an easy-to-make Hopscotch Mat for hours of fun and exercise.
Foam Yoga mats can be purchased in bright colors for $10-$15. We found ours at WalMart for $10.
What To Do:
Hopscotch Rules: Each Player must have a small "stone" or other object to play. Player One stands at the low number end of the Hopscotch (not on mat) and throws his "stone" so that it lands on Square 1. He then hops over that square onto Square 2, on one foot, and then continues to "hopscotch" on one foot (or two, if squares are beside each other) Player hops to end (9/10), turns around and hops back, picking up his "stone" before he leaves the Mat. Players take turns, each time throwing their stone to the next highest number.
* For proper play, a player would have to start over if they step out of the Square they are hopping to ... but with little children it's best to just have fun and learn a little balance in the process.
