CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Staying at home and homeschooling amid the COVID-19 outbreak has challenged parents to figure out how to teach their kids in fun and creative ways.

One Chesterfield mom thought of a way to have neighborhood kids practice counting and distance while practicing social distance.

Ella, Wyatt, Milo, Penny, and Noah worked together to create the “World's Largest Hopscotch Game."

The Crestwood Elementary School students created a hopscotch board that had 3,307 squares and went through part of their neighborhood.

Neighbors came out to participate as drawers, hoppers, or spectators.

"As we all navigate this new normal of homeschooling while working from home full time, any way that incorporates fun into a teaching concept is wonderful," parent Leandra Dunlevy said.
