Social Distancing Games for Children?
“LIGHT BULB MOMENT……SKIPPING GAMES – Could They Be The Best Social Distancing Games Ever?
I was always in playgrounds skipping with children – up until the pandemic that is!
When I trained midday supervisors in thousands of schools,
we would agree a rota of key playground duties that each midday supervisor would engage with each day.
SKIPPING was always (apart from football!!!) the key game that children of all ages loved.
I have been collecting games as a teacher since 1972 – so I have 48 years’ worth, either in publishes Positive Press books or handwritten in notebooks.
So in these horribly socially distanced playtimes, I decided to GIVE AWAY our long rope skipping games for free. Just use a long skipping rope – one adult and a tall child hold either end of the rope with a child skipping in the middle. They can all line up 2 metres away. Everyone is always desperate for a go.
