Hopscotch

땅 따먹기

What childhood games did you play when you were younger? Simon Says? Heads up, Seven up? For Gayeon, she recalls hopscotch. When seeing the picture of the lines drawn in the dirt, she sees the friends that she played with standing there as well.

The version of hopscotch that she enjoyed was played with 2 or 4 people. The hopscotch lines could also be drawn in a number of ways. One could use a branch, a stone, or if neither of those were available, then one could use their toes to draw the lines as well. The game only required a square so it was easy for everyone to enjoy anywhere.

We invite you to also think of games that you used to play as a kid and the friends with whom you played. You can feel once again the innocence of childhood and the pure joy of simply having a good time with fellow friends.
