Jumping rope is a classic game that has been around forever! With this activity you can teach your kids how to jump rope no matter what age they are. They will love showing you any special tricks they have come up with.
What you need:
- jump rope
Number of players:
Tie the sock to the end of a jump rope.
Have the children stand around you in a circle (or if there is only one child they can just stand in front of you) a little less than the length of the rope away.
Swing the rope low and slow and encourage the children to jump as it comes past.
For younger children, you might need to go very slow on the ground as their coordination will not allow much more than this.
For older children, you can swing the rope faster and higher and higher with each turn.
They will love showing you their capabilities!
