Make a “V” with your rope on the floor and jump over the river. Remember the rule of two through (You can only take 2 steps before jumping, must jump off of 2 feet, and always land on 2 feet).
Make a circle on the floor and jump over the rain puddle
Make a letter and jump over the letter. After jumping over the letter 10 times find a word that starts with that letter and use it in a sentence.
Have a buddy and yourself both make a single digit number on the floor and jump over them. After jumping add or subtract the numbers together or even with the number of jumps you made in a certain amount of time.
Snake (side to side motion) or Wave (little up and down motion)-Keep the rope on the floor and use a group of three (A group of two can be used if you needed just tie one end to a stationary object.). Rotate jumpers every 5 jumps.
Now take the jump rope in your hands and try the following activities:

How do you size the jump rope? Stand in the middle of the rope on two feet. The rope handles should be directly under your armpits. If the rope handles are higher, for example around your ears, you should wrap one or both ends of the rope around the outside of your hand and measure again until it is the appropriate height.
