Skipping elastic

Skipping elastic

About this memory

To play with skipping elastics you need at least three people. Two people stand with the elastic is stretched around their ankles. The player who isn’t holding the elastic then tries to jump in and out of the elastic loop. The game is made harder by moving the elastic higher up your body.
