Cinderella Dressed in Yellow
Jump Rope Song

Dressed in yellow
Went to kiss a prince,
By mistake,
Kissed a snake.
How many doctors
Did it take,
Was it,

Here's a slightly different version from

Cinderella dressed in yellow
went upstairs to kiss her fella
made a mistake and kissed a snake
how many doctors will it take
1, 2, 3, 4, 5....

Cinderella Jump Rope Rhyme

Cinderella dressed in yella,
Went upstairs to kiss a fella,
Made a mistake and kissed a snake
How many doctors will it take:
Three....(continues until jumper messes up).

Game Instructions

Jump rope while reciting the rhyme. When you get to the counting part, you jump on each number. If you miss, you stop. Whatever number you're on, that's the number of doctors Cinderella needs!
