Wiggly Worm

Skipping RopeThis game introduces 4-6 year olds to the use of a skipping rope and the idea of jumping over something.

What you need:

  • Skipping rope

At least three people are needed for this game (or two if you tie one end of the rope to a chair/table)

How to play:

  1. Put the skipping rope on the ground with two people holding either end. They start shaking the handles so the rope starts to move like a worm.
  2. The child tries to jump over the rope as many times as possible without touching it. Have your child try to keep count.
  3. You can make the game harder by shaking the rope faster or by adding in another rope.
