In-School event ideas

Check out these ideas and tips to help your school have an amazing Jump Day!

It is up to each school to ensure you are following local public health and school board rules and policies for your event activities.

Outdoor stations

If school yard is large enough, set up different physically distanced stations and have classes take turns rotating to each station throughout the duration of your event day. Stations can include: skipping, an obstacle course, hula hoop activities.

In classrooms

Have each class participate on event day in their own classroom. Play Simon Says, musical chairs or skipping games!

In gym class

Host Jump throughout a week and have classes participate during their scheduled gym class! Set up different physically distanced skipping stations using Jump Rope for Heart Skipping skills posters and have students complete each activity as part of their Jump Event.
