Jumping is such a fun activity to practice. But be warned — once they learn how to jump, they will be jumping around the house!


Steps to Jumping

  • Feet shoulder-width apart
  • Bend knees
  • Swing arms back behind body
  • Push up from heel to toes
  • Forcful forward momentum, swing arms upwards
  • Legs straighten in air
  • Both feet contact ground at same time


What to Watch For

  • Make sure eyes are looking in direction of jump
  • Land on balls of feet
  • The key to a jump is landing on both feet at the same time — this can take practice as it invlolves balance!



  • To make it harder, try running and jumping — but remember to land on both feet!
  • Can practice jumping over objects — as long as it is safe!
