Good Old-Fashioned Hopscotch

We have been blessed with perfect hopscotch weather. When I was young I would spend hours playing hopscotch with my friends from the neighborhood, so I was excited about initiating the girls into this timeless tradition. As I introduced the game to my daughters I was reminded of just how challenging it can be and how great it is for developing large motor skills and hand-eye coordination. The best part is that it is just downright fun for both children and grown-ups alike!

Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
