Jump Around! Vintage Skipping Rope

  • Pin it

Do you ever dream about your childhood and all those games you played and how fun it used to be?

I do. And sometimes I wish I’d live it all over again. Now. Live my childhood as an adult. Luckily I have my kids to help get the impossible possible. Oh, those young years! What a bliss!

I am still young nough to do childish things, but I never have the time! This definetly makes me want to dig up all the skipping games and rhymes I used to know.

I miss those halcyon days!
I used to love double dutch and jumpsies!

A joyous picture. I think it important to openly credit this capture of a form of group play so long gone from our neighbourhoods, to the late Dutch-Canadian photojournalist Kryn Taconis…

– THANKS for showing us this!
