How to play it: In this Filipino version of hopscotch, Mom or Dad throws his pato (a flat rock or piece of terra cotta) on the diagram so that it lands on the Number 1 block and never on the lines. He hops on one foot along the diagram, moving from one numbered block to the next each block, but skipping the block where the pato is. The player needs to skip back after reaching Block 10, and makes a stop one block before the pato's current block—and while balancing on one foot—picks up the pato beforehopping over the block to beyond the diagram's starting line.
The game continues with the same player throwing the pato on to the next block, following the numerical order, and then hops on to the diagram's blocks just like in the previous round. In piko, players keep their turns until they make a mistake. Don't forget the bonus round and let your kids see that you are the piko master--until they beat you, that is.
Teach your kids some traditionall Filipino games get them tipping down cans, stealing bases and jumping over hands just like you used to do.
