Skipping rope game. Long rope with two handlers one at each end.

All in together, boys and girls (everyone runs into the rope and starts skipping)
Never mind the weather, boys and girls

When I count twenty, the rope must be empty
Five, ten, fifteen, twenty (everyone runs out of the rope)

When I count ten, the rope must be full again
Five, ten (everyone runs back in)

When I count two, you must touch your shoe
One, two

When I count four, you must touch the floor
Two, four

When I count six, you must do the splits
Two, four, six (jump in the air with legs apart)
