Tape Line Games for One or More!

Make 5–10 separate lines of tape, each about a foot apart, on your floor or carpet. Label the first one the “start” line and then give your kids simple instructions to play these five games:

Long Jump:

See how many lines they can jump over. Have them try and beat their best score each time. Experiment with arm swinging vs. arms behind their backs.

Run ‘n’ Jump:

Now let them take a running start and see if they can jump even further!

Long Jump Backwards:

Increase the difficulty by performing the tasks jumping backwards.


How far can they jump on one leg?

Reach ‘n’ Stretch:

How far can their leg reach with one foot on the “start” line?
