Jump rope

Find skipping ropes of suitable length of reach of your children and for yourself. Then practise simple rope-skipping until you can all do it smoothly and easily.

Then try new tricks like double-skipping, rope-crossing, and turning. Search YouTube and Google for ideas. See who can master these the fastest.

You can also get two long ropes of equal length and two people turn the ropes while the others take turns skipping. Again, there are numerous variations on the basic skipping pattern – see what the internet suggests.

Tips:

Approval instils confidence in young girls

Daughters need to know that you believe in them and that you will support them in achieving their dreams.

Activities:

Take each of your children on one-on-one trips

One-on-one trips (no other adults, no other kids) are a valuable way of spending time with your child and showing them they are special.
