Sharing is caring!

Yesterday was International Children’s Day and I wanted to get outside with Squeaker to teach her how to play hopscotch… Or, at the very least, show her what it was like and give our neighborhood an invitation to play. But, the weather didn’t cooperate at all, so we held off. Today, unfortunately, wasn’t much better but I still wanted to play hopscotch with her which also happened to be Challenge #22 from Milk Life.

So instead, we took the game indoors and had a lot of fun in the process!

We played indoor hopscotch as part of our gross motor play today and also ended up working in an informal lesson on numbers.

First things first, we had to create our numbers. And while we would normally use sidewalk chalk for this process, instead I used pieces of card stock and crayons. While I made the number cards, Squeaker sat with me and I talked about the numbers as I drew them.

I then let her trace the numbers before we set them up on the floor.

Our next step was to find a spot to put the number cards down. I was either going to use the living room rug, which is where we have the majority of our gross motor play, or the kitchen hallway.

Eventually we decided on the living room rug.

After showing Squeaker what to do, I wanted to see what she would do… full well knowing that she doesn’t quite have the coordination to hop on one foot yet.

Still, I think she did very well with this!

Then, after taking a quick break to refuel, we were back at it.

Once the weather is cooperating, we’ll take this game outdoors and see how she does. Or maybe I’ll just draw the hopscotch board and see what our neighbors think of it. There’s really something so inviting about a hopscotch board on the sidewalk, don’t you think?

And did you know?

  • Milk has 8 grams of high-quality protein. Which could be the difference between just living life…and milking it.
  • Milk has 9 essential nutrients, including 8 grams of high-quality protein in each 8 ounce glass.
  • Start every day with the power of protein.
  • Including milk’s protein at breakfast can help you make the most of every day.

I start my morning with a glass of milk at breakfast to keep me fueled and ready to keep up with Squeaker. And when she needs a quick pick me up, I know that giving her a small glass of milk will help keep her ready to play.
