Good Old-Fashioned Playtime
How To: Play HopscotchRequired: Chalk, pebbles, and two or more players
- Draw the court. (See photo shown, or click on the above icon for a diagram.)
- The first player tosses a pebble into the number-one square, then hops over that square on one foot and through the rest of the court, hopping on one foot for single squares and with two feet when two squares are side-by-side.
- At the final square, the player turns around and repeats the pattern on the way back, pausing on one foot in the second-to-last square to pick up the marker, then hopping on the first square and off the court.
- In round two, the player tosses the marker into the number-two square and hops through the sequence, this time avoiding the number-two spot. A player is out if her marker doesn’t land in the right square, if her foot lands in a square with a marker, or if she puts two feet down in any one box. The first player to complete the entire cycle (moving the marker from the first square to the last and hopping through each configuration) wins.
