Hopscotch Thursday - Handmade

My grandmother gave us a pretty pile of fabrics and I decided to  hand stitched these cute hopscotch markers.I filled them with little shiny pebbles - they are fun and pretty and feel good to  hold. 

Then we set off with our chalk and I drew the hopscotch board. I learned from my past experience with this game was that I was drawing the board to big - so a small tip - make the board child sized. 

We then decided on who would go first. I felt it was only fair to let Ella go first since she had two boo-boo toes. 

Brilliant and fun. (motor skills, counting, waiting your turn, dexterity,... )

Vivian was napping while we played hopscotch - Ella was in heaven having  me all to herself. I was feeling pretty good too. 

What do you do for summer time fun?

Namaste, Nicole
