Jump Rope - Kids Free Activity Idea of the Dayfree

Kiddealz may earn a small commission via affiliate links in this post. Please read the disclosure.


Jumping rope is a great activity for exercise and kids love doing it.  If the kids get bored quickly try giving them some challenges such as:
  • See if they can double jump -- turn the rope twice while jumping just once.
  • Have them count how many times they can jump.
  • See if they can criss cross jump -- cross and uncross their arms while jumping.
  • Have them practice their spelling and jump out each letter.
  • Jump on one foot and/or alternate which foot lands. 
Most dollar stores sell jump ropes.  You can even use rope or have the kids connect rubber bands  together to make one themselves.

Have fun!

Flashlight Tag - Kids Free Activity Idea of the Day



Try playing flashlight tag.  It is just like regular tag, but instead of running around and tagging friends out by touching them you touch them with the flashlight.

Make sure to find a space inside or outside that is dark enough for the flashlight beam to show well and that has enough hiding spaces.

You can either have one person be it and hold the flash light or everyone can have their own flashlights.

You can also play against a wall if you want the kids to wind down or have a smaller space.
