Full Answer

A hopscotch board can be scratched out on a soft surface, such as sand or dirt, by scratching the grid out with a sharp object. On a hard surface, such as the patio of a house or a permanently paved playground, the board can be drawn with chalk. The board is made up of several linear squares and blocks of lateral squares. To draw the board, start by drawing a circle.This circle is called “home” in the classic hopscotch board. Draw three single squares, a double square, a single one, a double square, and two single squares next. Finish drawing the board by adding another circle at the end.This circle is known as “heaven.” Number the squares in the sequence they are hopped in.

In some hopscotch grids, the circle “heaven” is known as “home” or “safe.” There are numerous variations of the hopscotch board. A French variation of hopscotch is called “escargot,” which means snail. The grid for this game is spiral. Another variant is the one played in the Glasgow area. The game goes by the name “Peever” or “Beds.” In Switzerland, Austria and Germany, hopscotch is called “Himmel und Hölle,” which translates to heaven and hell.
