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.
