When the weather warmed, somebody brought their jumprope and we used it until recess and lunch were over.
Double Dutch (I never mastered it), snake (swinging rope back and forth to jump over). "House for rent, inquire within, when I move out let (next girl) move in!"
Then, "Charlie Chaplin went to France to teach the girls a hoochie-koochie dance! Heel and toe, around we go, heel and toe, around we go. Salute to the captain, bow to the queen, and touch the bottom of a submarine!"
Of course, movements matched the words. What fun! Do kids even jump rope any more?
