Jump rope games have always been popular in countries around the world. One version, played with rubber bands connected together to make a long rope, is enjoyed in many countries in Mexico and Central and South America. In Colombia, girls play a rope game called “Resorte-Chicle” in which a player starts by jumping with the elastic at ankle height. Then it is raised to the middle of the leg, then to the knees, the hips, the waist, the chest, the shoulders, the neck, and head. In the last level called “heaven,” the elastic band is held up with raised arms!

To play the game, you will need three people. Two players, one in each corner, hold an elastic band rope and the other person plays.

A player starts by jumping the elastic at ankle height. Then it is raised to the middle of the leg, then to the knees, the hips, the waist, the chest, the shoulders, the neck, and head. In the last level called heaven, the elastic band is held up with raised arms.

To play this jump rope game, players follow these steps:

  • Jump into the middle of the elastic band. Open and close your legs three times.
  • Jump to one side of the elastic band and step on it. Jump to the other side and do the same.
  • Jump out of the elastic band.
  • Jump from the outside to the inside and try to take the elastic band with you. You have to cross the elastic from the right to the left.
  • Jump to open and close your legs three times.
  • Make a big hop, and try to keep the elastic band between your legs.
  • Jump out and go to the next level.

You have to play like that until you get to the fifth level, then you can do the same thing but this time you a

re not going to use your legs, rather you will use your head. In the last level (Heaven), you play with your arms.
