Jump ropes also have a long history. Children and adults have been jumping rope for centuries. One of the best things about jumping rope is the rhymes. There are a wide variety, but my favorite was always: “Lizzie Borden took an axe . . .”. The rhyme’s author remains unknown, but the poem lives on (unlike Borden’s father and step-mother.) Hopefully this illustration is creepy enough to match the rhyme.
