came across this site by accident while looking for hopscotch info. I had forgotten all about chinese ropes and will now be buying a bag of rubberbands as soon as poss so I can show my two young daughters how to play. I don’t recall singing rhymes but I do remember saying jump, split, jump etc as we crossed the ropes. We also used the rope as a simple jump strting at ankle height then ‘kneezies’, thighs, waist, underarm. not many girls got past that.
