With every VBS curriculum we like to change things up and offer new features to keep things exciting. With "Gotta Move!" we are integrating the world of double dutch jump roping and let me tell you...it is a blast! We worked with a double dutch team from the Bronx, NY for a few of our new videos and Jason and I had an absolute blast learning how to do it. It was easier than I thought!
When we were filming, I was amazed at how the minute we started jumping, children started appearing out of nowhere wanting to try it! We instantly realized that simply having music pumping and kids jumping rope at a church parking lot or park could be a great, non-threatening way to get children to your VBS.
Included in the "Gotta Move!" kit is an instructional video on how to double dutch and we even have the official ropes available here!
SO...you could play Red Rover for the millionth time or you could have a bunch of children rockin' out and trying out their double dutch skills! It's a great activity to reinforce the theme of "moving" and if the Go Fish Guys can do it, then you can definitely do it too! Here are a few shots from our video shoot with the double dutch team. We can't wait to see your sweet moves at VBS this summer too!
