Things to do with kids -Homemade hopscotch – for inside

Looking for things to do with the kids?

This ‘no sew‘ creative project will keep the children entertained for an hour at least! Plus if they’re old enough to help make it, even better!

Homemade hopscotch! Do you remember playing that game in the playground?! Well I recreated an inside version for my niece’s birthday – British weather is far too unreliable to play this game outside! Plus with lockdown, this makes the perfect indoor game.

I was inspired by the Tip Junkie Blog, which is full of too many amazing projects I also can’t wait to try out!)

This hopscotch mat is super easy to make as its a ‘no sew’ project.

All you need:

  • an old bed sheet or large piece of fabric
  • felt
  • scissors
  • glue gun or tube of fabric glue

All of these things can be purchased from a general craft store like Hobbycraft. I purchased some plain coloured canvas material to use as the main sheet. I then bought different coloured felt fabric and a few tubes of material glue. It’s pretty simple, just cut out the rectangles for the blocks and then the numbers.

Glue it all down et voila! If you’ve got any scraps of felt left over, why not make a border around the edge 🙂

If you have any other ideas on things to do with kids that are creative I’d love to hear about them. Send them over to me!
