Design and create a fun game for the children, based on hopscotch
How to play
Number of players: 2 or more.
Additional equipment: Small flat stone for each player.
How to play: The first player throws the stone onto triangle #1 and hops over this into triangle #2, hopping around the star into each numbered triangle until they reach the centre of the star (position #10). They then turn and hop back, reversing the numbers until they reach triangle #2, where they bend down, retrieve their stone, and hop back over triangle #1, returning to the start position. The player then throws the stone into triangle #2 and repeats the process. If a player misses, they return their stone to the previous triangle where it stays while the next player has a turn. Each player has to make it all the way to position #10 and back to the start, reversing the numbers, to finish the game – and the first one to do this is the Hopstar!

Use the string line and chalk to draw a circle with a radius of 1.2m.
Carefully remove the duct tape and use masking tape to mask off a star shape, as shown, removing the inner lines of the tape with a craft knife.
Apply one coat of Resene Multishield+ (Gloss) to the entire painted surface. Leave for 48 hours before playing.
