Birthday skipping game
Skipping is an outdoor group activity that is great for children. It is lots of fun and helps children learn coordination and timing of jumping.
What you need:
- Large skipping rope
Number of players:
Two people turn the rope in full circles.
Players line up on one side of the rope.
All players chant the following ryhme:
All in together
Never mind the weather
When I call your birthday month
You must jump in
All out together
It’s mighty fine weather
When it’s your birthday date
Please jump out
1,2,3,4, 5 etc to 31
Skippers jump into the rope when their birthday month is called.
By the time December is called, all skippers will be skipping together.
When their birth date is called, they jump back out.
For example, if you were born on 16 January, you jump in on the month of January and stay skipping while all the other months are called and all the other players jump into the turning rope.
When the number 16 is called you jump out.
