-Mise en place:

  • Players play rock-paper-scissors to determine who begins.

  • Each player is given an object to throw.

  • The first player stands at the beginning of the hop scotch course.


  • The first player tossed his object into the first square.

  • Assuming the object lands in the first square, the first player leaps over the first square and lands with one foot in the second square.

  • The player then lands with both feet in each side-by-side square and on one foot in single squares.

  • When the player has gone through the course they return in a similar fashion but stop before the square with their marker in it, they pick it up, and complete the course.

  • This player can go again till a mistake is made, or the next player gets a turn.

  • When two or more players are playing then players cannot land on any squares with markers in it--this can become very challenging.

  • What are some tricks to ensure an accurate toss into a square?
