There are days you just can’t get outside – either there are things to do at home, or the weather is not cooperating. But kids still have energy – and they need to get it out. You probably don’t have a dedicated “play room” that your kids can use to bounce off the walls, but you may have a hallway, or a little space in a room to bring one of the greatest outdoor games, inside – Hopscotch! There are a couple of different options that range in price.
1. Use tape on a wood floor! This is a pretty cheap/free way to turn your hallway into a play space.

2. Get a play mat that can be rolled up and stored when not in use. Etsy, as always is a great place to find one. They range in price and in design.
If you’ve got the DIY bug, you could probably make your own mat. I think the only thing I’d worry about with the mat is the kids slipping on it. They would probably think this was a bonus.
3. There are also hopscotch rugs that you can get. A simple google search will bring up a huge variety to choose from. These probably wouldn’t be my first choice since they’re more permanent additions to your house’s decor.
Good luck getting some of the wiggles out!
