Jump the Skipping Rope! * Sãriti coarda!

The game is organized in small groups, four or five children in a team. Every player must have a skipping rope. The leader of the game gives the start signal. The rivals must jump the skipping rope five times with the right foot, then with the left one. After that they run to a sign established before- a wall or a tree- they touch it and they turn tack quickly to hand over the skipping rope to the next players. The leader of the game observes the mistakes of every team and declares winner the team with the most few penalizations.

Over our heads and under our toes,
Round and round the skipping-rope goes.
Over our heads and under our toes,
If we are nimble the skipping-rope goes.

Lady, lady, drop your purse,
Lady, lady, pick it up;
Lady, lady, touch the ground,
Lady, lady, turn right round;
Lady, lady, will you play?
Lady, lady, run away!

Jump the rope,
Jump the rope,
Jump, jump, jump!

Jump it high,
Jump it low,
Jump, jump, jump!

Jump it fast,
Jump it slow,
Jump, jump, jump!

Jump again
Out you go,
Jump, jump, jump!

Concurentii trebuie sã sarã coarda de 5 ori cu piciorul drept, apoi cu cel stâng. Dupã aceea, ei aleargã la un semn dinainte stabilit, un zid sau un copac, îl ating si se întorc repede ca sã predea coarda urmãtorilor jucãtori. Conducãtorul jocului observã, noteazã greselile fiecãrei echipe si declarã învingãtoare echipa cu cele mai putine penalizãri.
