99. Skipping & Hopping Skipping and hopping - or a version of them - crop up naturally in many children’s playground games and there are plenty of good reasons why. Jumping is great for increasing bone density in developing limbs ( the child who cannot stand still is in fact busy building strong legs.) Games that involve skipping and hopping are also great for developing fast footwork, providing early training for school sports. Timing and co-ordination are also required - particularly with skipping, which requires a certain rhythm and doesn’t always come easily to the under-fives. Old fashioned games like hopscotch are the best way to develop skipping and hopping practice. Including counting and numbers not only builds number skills, but helps children connect abstract ideas (counting) to physical activities (jumping) and as such is an early introduction to maths.
