Jump!

  • Play with a jump rope.
  • Play with a jack-in-the-box if you have one. Count how many turns of the handle it takes to make Jack jump!
  • Jumping Jack Coloring
    1. Print out and color the jack-in-the-box coloring page below.
    2. Finish by writing a letter J inside the star.
    3. If the kids are full of energy, put the crayons at one end of the room and have them JUMP to get one crayon, then JUMP back to color with it. Repeat for each color Smile
