I want to make a hopscotch mat for my children to use indoors, and I want it to be washable.  However, we have all hard-surface floors (no carpets) and I obviously don't want this to slide when the children jump on it!

I would love any suggestions for non-skid (or low-skid) fabric to use for the backing (the stuff for pajama feet is way too narrow), and/or a way to weight it well so it won't slide around.

I might have to resort to using that non-slip stuff you put under rugs, but I'd rather build the non-skid into the mat itself, if there's a way.

I think Tulip makes a non-skid fabric paint. It's in a nozzle-tipped bottle so it's easy to apply to slippers, socks, etc. Aha, the general term is puffy paint, and the one from Tulip is called 3D Fashion Paint.

Now that you mention it, I've heard of that for footed pajamas.  I wonder if it would work on such a large scale?

(I remember when my mom used to decorate sweatshirts for us with that stuff!)

On another forum, people suggested using a hot glue gun to make patterns on the bottoms of knitted socks to make them skid proof. Would this help you, as it maybe cheaper than puffy glue?

Silicon caulking will work as well
