Jump Rope Fun

The kids napped late this afternoon which usually means they go to bed late if I don't help them get all their energy out before hand.  Since Andrew worked late tonight and it was up to me to put the kids to bed by myself, I wanted it to go as smoothly as possible.  So I came up with this energy burning activity.  The kids are too young to actually jump rope the traditional way.  This was a fun way alternative way to run, jump, and duck under the jump rope.
All you need are some streamers, a jump rope and some tape.  

Cut some streamer pieces and tape them to the jump rope.
I tied one end to the door know and  held the other end.
Hannah and Ethan patiently waited.

They squealed as they ran through the streamers over and over.

On your marks, get set....

This is a picture of Hannah jumping over, not stomping on the streamers.

Ethan trying to remove a streamer.

Hannah decided in the end to use  a fallen streamer as a belt.

This was fun and I am sure it did get rid of some energy.  However, they did not go to bed well.  Oh well!!
