Game description

Each two players make the team. The team leader swings the rope. Whenever they jump, they have to swap place as well. The one who stand in front gets behind and vis verse. This task requires coordination when jumping because the front jumper has to jump slightly to the right to make room for the second jumper. The second jumper, on the other hand, has to jump slightly left. This will give both kids enough room not to get caught up in the rope.


One could measure the time or the number of jumps within a certain time. Or simply: done or not done?
