How to learn while camping

Camping Game: Spell Hop

            Once your kiddos are tired of Cross Step, play Spell Hop. Draw a grid for the alphabet in sidewalk chalk. I did a 5 by 5, with Z tacked on to the bottom, but you’ll change the difficulty if you do 7 by 4 or 6 by 4 (ish). For an easier game, make the squares about a foot in size. To make it harder, make them 18 inches or so.  You can put the letters in ABC order for younger kiddos, or random order for older ones. Take turns calling out words for the kiddos to spell by jumping from letter to letter. A 6 letter word earns 6 points, and so on.  If they miss the letter or misspell the word, they get zero points for that round. My guys came up with challenges to earn extra points, like who can jump from A to X. Great way to practice spelling words too!
