Jump Rope Family Fun At Home
If you have fun watching the jump rope activities and want to try it as a family activity, Three Fat Chicks On A Diet has Three Fun Family Jump Rope Exercises you can try. I also came across this article on A Childhood List on how to make a jump rope out of plastic bags. I haven’t tried this project yet and have my doubts about whether the final product would be heavy enough to work well, but all I have to lose are some plastic grocery bags, so I really thing we’ll try this one. It makes a really pretty jump rope.
