Holiday Hopscotch

Do you have extra gift boxes from the Dollar Store?   Do your little ones need to burn off excess holiday energy?   

Here’s A Fun Solution!
 Make and Play  
Holiday Hopscotch

Design the hopscotch path using the tops and bottoms of the gift boxes.  Secure the edges of the boxes together with clear packing tape.   
(Before playing, secure the board to the floor with tape.  Painters tape works well.)

 If you do not have shapes available, allow the kids to decorate the plain boxes with holiday drawings and use a maker to number the boxes.

Add a holiday-shaped skipping stone.
 We are using a snowman wall hanger from the dollar store.

Remember to play holiday hopscotch several ways. Use two skipping stones and have the kids add, subtract, or multiply the marked numbers.   

For holiday skipping stones, check out your (plastic) decorations for ideas.

Happy December!
