Craft: 5 String Skipping Rope

What you need:

What you do:

  1. Take your 5 strands and tape them together, separate them..
  2. Take the strand on the right and bring it over the 2 strands next to it, then go to the left strand and bring it over the next 2 strands and continue braiding until completed.
  3. Tape the other end together so it doesn't come undone.
  4. If you don't have handles just take the tape off and glue it together (ask an adult to do the glueing) and you are done.
  5. If you have handles (from an old skipping rope) glue the ends tightly together so that they fit in the holes of the handle, then glue inside the handle for extra strength.
