Rope Games

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Toddler's Busy Book

Lay down a long rope in a zigzag pattern in the grass, and see if your toddler can walk on it without losing her balance.


This activity is good for either indoor or outdoor play.

Materials
  • Long rope

Directions

  1. Lay a long rope in a zigzag pattern in the grass or on your deck.
  2. See if your child can walk on the rope.
  3. Lay the rope in a straight line like a tightrope and have your child hold out his arms to balance himself as he walks.
  4. With the rope still lying straight, ask your child to think of how many ways he can go over it: walk across it, hop over it (on one or two feet), jump across it, crawl across it, or any other way he can think of.
