Play Hopscotch Indoors!

Take the age-old game inside for a fun, rainy day activity.

Best for kids aged: Four and up

What you’ll need: Colored tape; scissors.

Directions: Using sticky, colored tape, make a hopscotch grid as you would with chalk (go for carpeted or tiled areas). Jump!

Why they’ll love it: This version eludes all the downfalls of its outdoor cousin -- no waiting in line, and no rain washing it all away.
