Default need to find hopscotch marker

Okay, so I got the neighbor kids all interested in hopscotch and the game poison we used to play as kids. I had a 'hopitaw' (don't know how to spell it) that was like a flat, rubber disk to use. Do these exist anymore for you old timers like me? Or are we stuck with stupid rocks?

I love those too. I'm pretty sure I've seen them in the toy aisles, but can't be sure.

Yes, I've seen Hoppy Taws in the toy aisle in various stores and in the dollar stores.

Dollar Tree, WalMart and Target have them too. Check by the sidewalk chalk displays.

Happy Hopping!

Funny, I still have my hoppy taw(?) from when I was a kid. Some things you just can't give up--that and my garbage pail kids, lol.
Also, the other day my kids were teaching me how to play a game called "scorpion" and it's pretty much the "poison" we used to play.

I remember those. My 6th grade teacher had a bag of rubber heals from old men's shoes that he used for hoppy taws. They were great.

Here is a link for one online.

If you're really ambitious, you could make this or just the marker part.
