Hopscotch is the perfect game for city kids who have plenty of concrete available. Break out the sidewalk chalk and show your children the basic hopscotch rules, and they'll soon be inventing their own versions of this classic game. Hopscotch is essentially the perfect way for young children to spend endless hours practicing writing their numbers, learning numbers in order, developing physical skills, and improving their ability to take turns patiently. Hopscotch is great for all ages and mixed groups of children, since older kids can learn leadership and teaching skills as they share their knowledge of the game with the younger ones.
