The Chase is a fun movement where you can really get your heart rate up.
Two teams have to race each other to catch Green Grace and Red Ralph who pop up on the tiles with green and red light. And catching them isn’t as easy as you would think! There’s many ways to catch a them such as:
- Sitting on the tiles
- Doing jumping jacks
- Pressing on the tiles with your hands
It allows for a lot of exciting customization so your students can release some of their energy with a brain break to get ready for normal classroom education once more.
Sequence is a fun cognitive training game where the players have to remember a sequence.
The players build a sequence tile by tile and it quickly becomes quite challenging to memorize the pattern. It encourages children to share strategies and compete with each other or develop their own mental acuity.
The sequence can go as high as 20 tiles, so there’s a lot of room for your students to develop their memory!
Code a Spot
Code a Spot is an open platform that allows children and teachers to program the tiles.
You can choose what colour light and which sound each of the 12 different Hopspots-spots produces, and you can even record your own sounds for the game. Code a Spot provides endless possibilities as you get to decide how many spots you want to use and what for.
It could be used for making your own interactive stories combined with movement. Or practicing the order of the planets, practicing the months and so, so much more.

Flow Dance is designed by pupils at Uglegårdsskolen in Solrød who won an innovation contest about developing a new game for Hopspots.
Flow Dance is a game that combines dance and music. By jumping on the different spots the pupils can create their own music within the genres: Pop, Latin, Jazz and Middle Eastern music.
The music is recorded and it’s then used to choreograph a dance in which they can challenge each other.
The Island is an interactive story and game by Danish author Boris Hansen.
It combines active play and storytelling with an introduction to classic social science issues about everything from democracy to equality, policing, and so on.
In the game, a group is stranded on a deserted island where they must figure out how to overcome a line of dilemmas to survive.
The Island is a game for the 4th to 9th graders, and it’s played partly on the iPad where the children read and listen to the story, and partly on Hopspots which is used for physical collaboration exercises such as catching fish and exploring the island.
