Jump rope. A healthy and fun game for children
Children games: jump rope
‘I invite you, to what? At a café, at what time? At three o’clock … that’s how one of the songs we used to jump on at school began when we were little. We sweated the shirt jumping like frogs and kangaroos …
Jumping rope is, in addition to one of the most popular and fun games, a great physical exercise, ideal for children’s health and fun times.
The benefits of jumping rope with children
Without knowing it, it turns out that these games that we made in the school playground with a simple rope, were one of the most complete physical exercises. His practice has great benefits for our children and even for us. Jumping rope can be a strenuous exercise for an adult, but accompanied by a song or an invitation, it becomes a really stimulating game for our children that without posing, they end up jumping bathed in sweat and breathing between breathing and breathing. A rope is a perfect activity to share with friends and to enjoy the outdoors.
Jump rope is a complete physical exercise, as well as a fun: it is a great method to burn calories and have a good physical background. It also helps our children to have better coordination of arms and legs, and greater balance, speed and agility. Jump with legs together, alternate, running while moving your arms coordinately uff, I’m tired just thinking about it! and, nevertheless, they do not get tired of hitting the rope while they sing, exercising all the muscles of the body.
I encourage you to buy a rope for your children (if they do not have one already), in a cheap and fun way you will get your child to strengthen their cardiovascular system, have strength and flexibility in the muscles and that will improve their ability to coordinate hands, eyes and feet; achieve a good spatial orientation and have a sense of rhythm (since they have to adapt the speed of the jump to the song). Jumping to jump may seem tired and boring, but when it is part of the children’s game, the rope is a great and fun tool to combat the risk of a sedentary life that we are often engaged in and that can lead our children to come obesity. So jump!
