Day 90..... Jump Rope

Earlier this week in co/op the gym teacher was playing jump rope with the younger kids and they loved it. I thought we would give it a try for today's family fun activity.

Normally when I think of jump rope I think of doing it by yourself as opposed to two people turning the rope for you. We played it this way with the five kids and they all couldn't wait for their next turn.

They each went from barely being able to jump once to getting 4, 5, 9, and even 14 jumps in a row!! The little guy Camden had a great time jumping over the two snakes that we wiggled on the ground for him.

Jackson was our jumping king with 14 times!! I think even he was surprised!! Lots of fun, great exercise and a free activity.
