Last summer Susannah discovered hopscotch and she spent the better part of our week at grandmas scratching out blocks and numbers on the concrete. And if there’s one thing Susannah has plenty of, it’s energy. Boundless energy.
Since we keep the pool on our patio, and I don’t let the girls out front, there isn’t anywhere for the girl to play her favorite game.
Plus, who wants to sweat in 100+ degree heat, when you can play inside in the air conditioning? 🙂
Solution? Indoor Hopscotch Mat!
(Idea found here.)
1 yard canvas or heavy fabric
This puppy was super simple to put together. Just hem the edges of the fabric and cut numbers out of the felt squares (I used a stencil). Glue squares down in whatever order you want. I picked a super simple design so Madeline could learn, too.
We painted a few small rocks to use as markers and we’re all set!
