jump rope

Cinderalla, dressed in yella, went downstairs to kiss a fella, made a mistake, and kissed a snake, how many doctors did it take? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6… or Miss Mary Mack, Mack, all dressed in black, black…

The playground classic of jumping rope seems to have disappeared and we are declaring that it’s time for a comeback! Every child needs to know the joys of jumping rope! It’s a wonderful addition to their physical activities and it does the little body a lot of good. Jump roping helps a child develop balance, coordination and dexterity. In addition, it helps them build muscles and provides a high impact, cardiovascular workout that tones the upper and lower body.

Jump ropes cost under $10 and can be used almost anywhere. It’s a wonderful addition to add into the play repertoire. Grab a rope, turn on some music (or sing your own) and jump up & get down!

Learn the ropes! Some tips for jump roping:

Wear the correct shoe. Wear properly fitted athletic shoes with laces tied.
Get limber. Jump or run in place to warm up.
Slightly bend the knees, keep shoulders straight, feet slightly apart and look forward.
Use wrists when moving the rope overhead towards the feet.
Sing to a song or nursery rhyme – it’s fun and it helps keep the rhythm going while jumping.
