Teddy bear 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.
While everyone chants the rhyme, a skipper must enter the turning rope and do the actions while the rope is turning above their heads.
Teddy bear, teddy bear turn around (skipper turns around)
Teddy bear, teddy bear touch the ground (skipper touches the ground)
Teddy bear, teddy bear tie your shoe (skipper touches their shoe)
Teddy bear, teddy bear that will do!
Teddy bear, teddy bear climb the stairs (skipper hops from one foot to the other)
Teddy bear, teddy bear say your prayers (skipper puts hands together)
Teddy bear, teddy bear turn off the lights (skipper turns off imaginary light)
Teddy bear, teddy bear say good night (skipper places both hands together on side of the face)
At the end of the rhyme the first skipper jumps out and the next one comes in.
The rhyme starts again for each skipper.
If a skipper misses an action then they are out.
