Mexican Jumping Bean

What you will need:
-Plenty of jumpropes to facilitate any number of teams
-Enough adults to officiate for each team.

How to Play:
Split the youth group into even teams, (like 4 teams of 5). Have them line up single file and give the first person a jump rope. When the official says go, the first person steps forward and begins to jump the rope. An adult should be with each team to help count how many jumps the person does. The youth must jump the rope 10 consecutive times. If he or she messes up the count starts over. When he or she reaches 10 consecutive jumps, they pass it off to the next person in line, and so on. The first team to have all it’s members to jump the rope 10 times is the winner.
