Old Outdoor Games - Rubber Twist / Rubber String Jump

It is an old and simple game, but very important for children to learn co-ordination, movements, speed and jumping!

  • A rubber string is stretched between two children standing opposite
  • A third child jumpes over - into - on- over the string, according to agreed rules
  • If it succeeds, the level goes up by elevating the height of the string

The child may also jump following certain commandos like :

HAU - RUCK - DONALD - DUCK - MICKY - MAUS - MITTE - RAUS

Every word/command means jumping a special figure...

Mistakes:
  • landing on the wrong rubber string
  • get entangled in the string
  • touching the string
  • wrong choreography...

TRY it with your children!
