Indoor Jump Rope
Here's a clever way to re-purpose your jump rope or even a long piece of yarn. Stretch your jump rope, or other long string, on the floor and use it as a "tightrope"; your child can walk backwards, forwards, eyes closed, etc. For an added "circus" touch, give your child a broomstick to use as a balance. You could also use the jump rope as an obstacle, having your child jump over the rope forwards, sideways, with two feet, with one foot, etc. This is also fun with the garden hose in the backyard.
