Jump Up, Jump Up and Get Down

Not only is jump rope a time-honored kid activity, it’s also a fantastic workout. Timing, coordination, endurance and stamina are all part of it. We did all sorts of rope activities, from individual ropes to snakes (wiggling the rope on the floor to jump over for preschool & Younger Kids), long rope with two turners, jump rope rhymes, tricks with two people and one short rope, Jump the Shot, even using hula hoops for various jumping activities. I think the kids were amazed that you can have so much fun with just a simple piece of rope.
