Jumping Rope It’s Not For Toddlers

May 1, 2009

Have you ever tried to teach an almost four-year-old how to jump rope?

Now have you ever tried to teach a four-year-old how to jump rope while holding on to one end of the rope and having your two-year-old hold the other end?

I don’t recommend it.

It would have made for some pretty entertaining video had I been able to hold the camera with my free hand. Instead my free hand was covering my eyes to avoid the carnage that I was sure was heading our way.

Fortunately there was no blood. There may be a bruise or two, but no blood.

I think we’ll hold off on the jump roping for a while.

    I will gladly teach her to jump rope, If you teach Keegan how to properly tie his shoes or teach him to ride his bike without training wheels he leans way to the side so of course he is always falling. I am pretty much at my wits end with both of these things!I am not sure what I could be doing different!
