Jump Over the Rope

Players try to jump over a rope of varying height.


  • Lightweight rope that is at least 6-10 feet wide.
  • It’s better to play this on a soft surface in case players fall.


  • Have two leaders, each lightly holding one end of the rope.
  • Players form a line and only 1 player jumps at a time.
  • Players can ask the rope to be lower or higher, based on how high they want to try to jump.
  • Players must jump over the rope and land with both feet.
  • If the jumping player gets caught on the rope, the leaders let go of the rope so no players trip.
