Recently we saw this PAW Patrol hopscotch mats so when asked would we like to try them out I couldn’t say no. The boys are huge PAW Patrol fans they love it. You can watch it on Nick Jr most days. Euan’s favourite character is Chase and Edwards is Marshall. They shout at the TV Patrol mummy Patrol they are so cute. I have the theme tune permanently engraved in my brain they have it at least once every day.
What is PAW Patrol? In case you don’t know.
A group of six rescue dogs, led by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder, has adventures in “PAW Patrol.” The heroic pups, who believe “no job is too big, no pup is too small,” work together to protect the community. Among the members of the group are firedog Marshall, police pup Chase, and fearless Skye. All of the animals have special skills, gadgets and vehicles that help them on their rescue missions. Whether rescuing a kitten or saving a train from a rockslide, the PAW Patrol is always up for the challenge while also making sure there’s time for a game or a laugh.
Recently the boys love playing in Jacks playground on the school run. They have lots of different markings on the floor they love the jumping ones. So I thought hopscotch mats would be fab for them they have their favourite characters on them and also numbers. The numbers will help them count as well as having fun.
The matts are made of foam and really brightly coloured. They all clip together like a jigsaw so are really easy to assemble. You can even mess about with the order you place them in as they get older to help them learn the number sequence. Each mat is just over 30cm sq an assembles as hopscotch would be 180cm x 60cm. The mats about 1cm thick and are feel sturdy. we have played with tem for just over a week and they are still in good condition I personally think they will last a good while.
The boys have loved playing with these making and breaking the different combinations up and its been great to teach them numbers and getting them in the right order or at least trying.
You can purchase these mats from Home bargains and also on Amazon
