Marisa taught me this jump rope rhyme below (many of you might know some version of it)…
Cinderella Dressed in Yellow
Jump Rope Song
Dressed in yellow
Went to kiss a prince,
Kissed a snake.
How many doctors
Did it take,
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!
Please feel free to let us know about the version of the Cinderella rhyme that you know or other jump rope rhymes in the comments below.
Thanks to Marisa for contributing and reciting this rhyme, and for explaining how to play the jump rope game!
