IT is a well-loved children�s game that has been on the wane recently, but hopscotch has made its return in Fremantle.

Artist Penny Farrell was busy this morning painting a giant hopscotch court outside of Capri Restaurant on the Cappuccino Strip.

A Fremantle BID spokesperson said it was hoped the court would attract children and adults to give the old-school game a go as they walked through the popular street.

Four-year-old Shylaah Boyd gave the court two thumbs up after being the first to try it out.
