How to Play HopscotchIts as easy as 1-2-3!
Hopscotch is a fun game to play with my friends because we can cheer for each other!
I will ask an adult to draw the hopscotch numbers for my friend and I.
It is important to share the playing space with my friend so we both get a chance to hop and jump on the numbers.
My friend and I will take turns throwing our beanbags so we dont get in each others way. Only one of us will jump at a time so we dont bump into each other.
I will toss my beanbag to the number 1 on the ground in front of me. I will throw carefully so it lands inside the box.
I will make sure I dont hop onto the square that has my beanbag on it. I will have to hop over top the square to the next number.
I will start by jumping over top number 1 and land on two feet on the numbers 2 and 3. I will make sure I put my hands out for balance if I feel wobbly.
Next, I will hop on one foot to land on 4 and hold my balance by keeping my arms out to the side.
From the 4, I will jump onto 5 and 6 and land on two feet.
I feel like Im going to fall, I can ask my friend to hold my hand.
Then I will hop off 5 and 6 and land on one foot on the number 7!
When I see 8 and 9, I will jump and land on them with my two feet.
Im almost to the 10 which means Im doing a great job!
When I get to the number 10, I will hop onto it and try to hop in a circle on one foot so that I turn around and can go back down the numbers to pick up my beanbag!
After I hop myself around, I will hop off of 10 and land on 8 and 9 with two feet and continue all the way back to my beanbag.
If a number is by itself, that means I can only land on one of my feet. If there are two numbers side by side, I can land on both of my feet.
When I get back to 2 and 3, I will bend down without moving my feet and pick up my beanbag from 1.
I will hold my beanbag in my hand and hop on one foot onto number 1.
To finish the game, I will hop off number 1 and clap for myself because I did a great job with my balance!
Now its my friends turn. I will cheer for them and help them if they need it.
