Bamse bamse ta i bakken


Jump rope rhymes or skipping rope rhymes are a kind of chants that we sing while we jump. We know from history that jump rope chants were popular by the early 1900s.

Jumping rope will help train balance, body motor movements and rhythm, and is a great cardio-vascular work-out! Besides, it's great fun! It is a kind of multi-tasking - all the while children learn to recognize patterns and learn terms connected to space and movement; forwards, backwards, sideways, over and under, and more.

We can jump alone, or together in a larger rope. We can skip on one leg, both, we can swirl, touch the ground and change partners - and lots more.

Behind the links you find lyrics, sheet music and sound clips. This site is made for learning purposes, and the sound clips may vary in quality. On my site musikkrom you will find some of these children's songs, and also a large collection of canons and rounds (kanon)
