For this particular game you need to make the hopscotch grid that starts from 1 to 8 or sometimes 10. The game starts by the first player throwing a rock at first box and then hops from the next one till the end and back. The game continues on like that followed by each player till you reach the last box. It gets hard to throw the rock at the big numbers that are a bit far which increases the enjoyment for the kids.

Red Rover

Red Rover is a simple game to understand. You need to divide in to 2 groups, and form a line holding hands. The opposite team calls out “red rover, come out” and one player from the other team comes out and tries to break the other teams line. If he fails he joins that team and it goes on like that. This game requires no equipment, and teaches kids the rules of playing in teams.
