SNAKE IN THE GRASS

Make sure you have:

  • A jump rope.
  • At least 3 players

Here’s what to do:

  1. Two players kneel on the ground, each holding one end of the rope. Move the rope back and forth, so that it slithers like a snake. You can make it move fast or slow, however you want!
  2. The other players take turns trying to jump over the “snake” without touching it. If you do, you’re eliminated. The last person to survive the snake wins!

P.S. You can change it up by moving the rope up and down quickly so that it makes ocean waves instead of a snake. Each player jumps over the waves and back. The last person to make it over without touching a wave wins.

HELICOPTER

Make sure you have:

  • A jump rope.
  • At least 3 players

Here’s what to do:

  1. Choose one person to be the spinner. That person holds one end of the rope. The other players form a circle around him.
  2. The spinner twirls quickly around, holding the jump rope low to the group so that it whirls like a helicopter propeller. Each player must leap to avoid touching the propeller (or “rotor” if you want to be fancy). If you touch it, you’re out. The last person to make it past the propeller wins.

DON’T SPILL

Make sure you have:

  • A jump rope
  • A plastic cup filled with water
  • At least 3 players

Here’s what to do:

  1. This is exactly like standard jump rope, except that the jumper holds a cup of water. The jumper tries to complete 10 jumps in a row without spilling any water (the turners should keep the pace steady).
  2. When each player has completed 10 jumps without spilling water, do a new round with 15 jumps. Increase by 5 jumps each round until only one player has any water left. That player wins!
