Hopscotch is a great activity when you are fleet-of-foot. It's not so great when you are afflicted arthritically. The shoe hop is painful and can lead to further pain or injury.
Stay safe while putting on your shoes.
Place a chair by the door you use to exit and enter your home.
That chair will be appreciated by all who come to visit, whether they are young or old, abled, "diffabled" or disabled.
