How to Make a Hopscotch Mat

From the blogger: "Make an easy hopscotch mat entirely from felt! The materials are easy - a two yard piece of felt, additional felt squares, number templates, and glue. I simply chose coordinating colors and started cutting felt into the squares. Then, I used black felt and my number templates to cut the numbers out. I glued the numbers to the squares and the squares to the large piece of felt - and voila! In under an hour, I had a hopscotch mat that has given my toddler and his friends countless hours of fun. This mat can be used indoors or outdoors as a game, and it even doubles as a reading mat, teaching your child their numbers as you read."
