A leap is jumping from one foot to the other foot! Make it fun and challenging by practicing leaping over a ball or any equipment you have at home.


Steps on Leaping

  • Start by standing on one leg
  • Press that leg into the ground
  • Bend the knee and prepare for liftoff!
  • You want to land on the opposite foot


What to Watch For

  • Eyes forward
  • Make sure to bend the knee for takeoff for lots of power!
  • Practice your balance when you land on each foot — use a wall if needed



  • Practice the standing leap first
  • Can place tape or a short object on ground to leap over
  • To challenge yourself, you can try the running leap — from a run, you want to leap from one foot but land on the opposite
