Jump rope is a fun activity that is played by children and adults!  There’s not a lot of equipment required. Comfortable shoes and a good rope. You can do it by yourself or with a group. When jumping with a group and a longer rope, one person holds the rope at each end, turning it, while one or more jumps. There are many variations of jumping rope, like using two ropes called Double Dutch, doing tricks and saying rhymes as you jump. 

 

What many don’t realize is, jumping rope is a great form of exercise!It strengthens your body and muscles. It also strengthens your heart so it can pump more blood per beat and doesn’t have to work as hard.
