I refilled our “Go Outside” cards this week, since they were such a hit (actually, I have to confess to remaking the whole thing since the first set mysteriously got torn in half!)One of the new cards was “Play Shape Hopscotch.” I had been trying to think of ways to help AJ learn her shapes when the idea for shape hopscotch popped in my head. Why not replace the traditional hopscotch board with a series of shapes?

I drew basic shapes in a line, the girls found their hopscotch rocks and started playing.
They threw their rock, announced the shape it landed in, near, or first bounced in (whichever was applicable) and started jumping. The rules were loose and they had a blast.
I should have brought a book outside with me because they most certainly did not need my participation with this game… at least, they did not need my participation after I drew the board.
It was free. It was easy. It was fun. Aren’t those the best activities?
