Jumping rope is a wonderful and important movement activity for kids. As a kindergarten teacher, I always made sure we had plenty of jumpropes available, and it was an outdoor activity enjoyed frequently by the older children in my class.
This timeless activity not only develops a child's agility, balance and coordination, but gross motor movement also helps their brain development.
Important Safety Information
For kids 5 years of age and older
Jump Ropes are designed for jump roping only. Do not use them to tie up things, people or pets.
The Jump Rope (single and double) should only be used in an open area such as a garage, a back yard or a field. Proper footwear is essential when jumping rope to prevent injury. Wear closed toed shoes that have shock absorbing qualities. Running shoes or shoes designed for sports where you jump like basketball, work great.
Care and Storage of your Jump Rope
When you’re finished with your Jump Rope, just coil it up and put it away in a dry place. To wash it, you can put it in a bucket of warm soapy water and swish it around. Scrub lightly with a scrubby sponge or brush to remove tough stains, or simply throw it in the washing machine inside a mesh washing bag.
