>#123: Jump Rope

>
If you have a long rope you can play with two friends. If not, you can tie two short ropes together, or simply skip by yourself. See how many times you can jump without tripping up the rope.

Jump rope songs can add fun and an added challenge. Ask your parents if they know jump rope songs, look some up online, in jump rope books, or make up your own.

Make this a family activity: See if your parents can jump rope.

This activity promotes coordination, gross motor skills and physical activity.

Playtime is more fun when it's shared with others. Share this post with your friends.
