Hopscotch Mat


I had a totally different blog planned for today, I’m making a rag rug, well attempting too, but it’s taking a little longer than I planned and I ran out of materials so I needed something else for today’s blog! What do I do? Call my Sister of course! I made my niece a Hopscotch mat for Christmas a few years ago. So I had her pull it out and take a million pictures for me to use! This really is a great little mat, and a perfect thing to have on hand during the winter when it’s too icky to be outside and the kiddos are driving you up the wall a little rambunctious!

Fun Fact: The original hopscotch courts were over 100 feet long and used for military training exercises.

Here’s what you’ll need:

A rug (mine was 6ft x 2ft)

Duct Tape

Spray Paint

Number Stencils




Here’s how you make it:

First decide how big you want the squares to be. I made them big enough that their feet would fit in the squares. I made a total of 8 squares. Figure out where to place each square and the pattern you want to make. Cut the strips of Duct Tape to make each square. Inside each square place the stencil and spray paint the number. That’s really all that involved! This is so easy and yet such a great indoor game!

ENJOY!
