This fun, colorful version of the classic sidewalk game can be played indoors or out. Roll out the rug for your child and explain that he/she has to throw the soft disc on a tile, then hop on the numbers, not touching the one that the disc landed on.
At first your child will probably need to jump with a two footed jump. Encourage him/her to jump further and further to distant numbers.
Practice counting by asking your child call out the numbers aloud as he/she hops on them. Have your child hop to a specific number and call out the colors on the rug.
Try asking your child to jump to a certain number and balance on one foot, then the other. This will encourage him/her to develop good balance as your child shifts his/her weight.
Then, show your little one how to hop on one foot once, twice, three times, until he/she can make it to the end of the board.
When you child masters this game, he/she will be able to hop through all the numbers, turn around and hop back. On his/her way back, your preschooler will be able to bend down and pick up his/her disc.
As far as learning toys go, this Hopscotch game is a great way to encourage social interaction. Invite over some friends and each take a turn at Hopscotch. Taking turns is an important skill your child will need as he/she moves toward school.
