How to play Hopscotch

Use chalk to draw a hopscotch pattern on the ground or use masking tape on the floor. Create a diagram with eight sections and number them. Each player has a marker such as a stone, shell, button, etc. For younger children simply hopping across the single versus double squares can provide hours of fun.
