Getting enough time to play outside is essential to my children maintaining positive behavior…and let’s be honest, it helps my behavior too! This indoor hopscotch game (made from a yoga mat) is a reusable activity that helps kids move to burn energy even when indoors.
Moving our whole bodies helps us get exercise, burn off excess energy (which, frankly, as a mom I do not have, but my kids do), and gets us outside to breathe some fresh air.
I shared a shape version of hopscotch that is pinned here. It is great for toddlers and older infants. I will be sharing it back here on the blog in a future post.
You can use bean bags like the DIY bean bags I shared previously to toss if you do not already have bean bags at home.
Here are the basic directions for hopscotch in case you need a refresher (I did) and a hopscotch fun fact: Hopscotch has been around for 300 years! (SportKnowHow.com)
Enjoy some gross motor activity for kids indoors on the bad weather days that keep us inside. If you have great weather, take the mat outside! It’s ready whenever your children want to play hopscotch.
What are your go-to indoor games when the weather is rainy outside?
Enjoy your time at home!
