The playground classic of jumping rope seems to have disappeared, and I am 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 less than $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 and get down!

Learn the ropes!  Some tips for jump roping:

I encourage my children to practice physical activities and jumping rope is one of their favorite exercises. Recently I bought a trampoline from http://bearofpa.com/ and all their friends come at our home to play with them, I thought they will forget about jumping roping but they still exercise every day.
