Some Old Fashion Fun- Jump Roping!
With Six girls and Three Boys in this Home... we definitely have a lot of "girl" activities going on!
JUMP ROPING takes the lead..
( next to home spas - nails, hair, the works!)
Here are my "jump ropers," and they wanted to share a few of their Jump Rope Rhymes for other families to try out.
It is guaranteed fun- all the way around..
We have a lot of jump ropes... even our 4 year old joins in the fun... it is amazing how early they can start jump roping! Have fun! Here are a few rhymes to try:
Benjamin Franklin went to France
To teach the ladies how to dance.
First the heel, and then the toe,
Spin around and out you go.
Or, How about this one?
Early in the morning, about eight o'clock,
What should I hear but the postman's knock.
Up jumps ____________ to open the door,
How many letters did she find on the floor?
A, B, C, D . . . .
Ever Hear of this Rhyme before?
Cinderella 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, . . . .
Ladybug, Ladybug, turn around,
Ladybug, Ladybug touch the ground.
Ladybug, Ladybug shine your shoes,
Ladybug, Ladybug read the news.
Ladybug, ladybug, how old are you?
One, two, three, four . . . . .
Another fun twist to our jumproping is adding memory verses to their jumping.
My girls have been memorizing Proverbs 3 to there jumps!
What a way to combine fun and learning-
You can have your children try Memory verses, math facts,, geography, states & capitals, etc.
Try some Old Fashion Fun this weekend!
