7. Snail’s Pace

This is a fun variation on hopscotch that your kids can play in the driveway. Use sidewalk chalk to draw a spiral. Divide it into squares and put sequential numbers in each space. Each player must hop on one foot from the beginning to the end.

If he or she is successful, he or she can write his or her initials in one square. The next player must skip that square. The longer the game goes on, the harder it is to get from the beginning to the end. Talk about fun!
