Masking tape is a versatile resource that many of us will have at home. It is cheap, doesn’t take up much space and doesn’t make any mess!
In this video, Ricky will be demonstrating two games that you can play in a fairly small space at home by simply using the masking tape. Watch the video to find out how you can play jumping lines and hopscotch at home with your children.
Both activities can support a child’s physical development by getting them moving – whatever the weather and however much space you have.
The jumping lines help toddlers and preschoolers understand distance, improve their balance and try different ways of moving for a real energy burst.
Hopscotch is traditionally an outdoor activity using chalk, but masking tapes means it can be adapted to play indoors. It is a great way to get the whole family involved in an easy and fun physical activity.
For pre-schoolers, hopscotch is a great way to start understanding numbers too – matching the figures they see to the number of jumps they do.
