Heart Hopscotch: An Active Valentine's Day Learning Game

Heart hopscotch is an indoor learning game that we've been playing for awhile and it is perfect for this time of year.

Hopscotch is pretty easy to play and you can teach kids all sorts of skills without them even realizing they are learning.

For this version of hopscotch all we needed was colored cardstock, markers, painters tape, and some lids.

We made our game by drawing hearts onto cardstock, adding numbers, and then taping the paper to the floor with painter's tape. We tossed plastic playdough lids instead of rocks.
There are a lot of different versions of hopscotch you can play... we just made up our own and practiced identifying and saying the names of the numbers while my kids were hopping.

My daughter just had fun jumping from number to number and saying the number names while my son played a little more strategically and tried to jump over the number that had a lid on it.

Do you have any other favorite active indoor learning games?
