hopscotch mat tutorial

Well, we still have another two weeks of Back-to-School fun, but in the meantime, today you are stuck with me! (Check the sidebar to see current giveaways). How are you enjoying Back-to-School Month so far? Want to hear something sad? Remember that messenger bag I made for Mr. P. to take to school? 

Well, it turns out it's not large enough for his school supplies, so he needs a backpack!! Anyone know of any good backpack tutorials? (Nothing too small, nothing too large?) Looks like it's back to the sewing table for me!

I have such vivid memories of playing hopscotch outdoors at my elementary school (in fact, it might be the only nice memory I have of that particular school. Maybe that's an exaggeration.) In any case, a chalk hopscotch board is all you need on a sunny day to have some fun, but what if it's raining? What if it's nighttime? What if your yard becomes infested with mosquitoes threatening you with West Nile virus and you simply don't want to go outside?

That's when you need to whip out your indoor hopscotch mat!!

You can also place some vinyl or any other non-skid substance on the back (yellow side) in order to keep it from slipping when your little cherubs are playing on it. 

Let the games begin!!!


  1. It does! I place some pieces of vinyl on the back for extra grip!

  4. Hi there, that's a neat idea for indoor fun on a rainy day. I remember playing hopscotch when I was a kid. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
