When I think of rope and my childhood I have memories of skipping at school and rope swings in the bush. Rope is a super versatile play item and in Active Play Idea #18 we’ve unravelled four simple ideas to share with your child.

Try learning a few different knots to show/teach your child – here’s a good starting point. Or, try making your own cargo net climber like Sticks and Stones Nature Playgroup did.

Remember fun with rope and knot tying leads to some great adventures later on when your children get older like: abseiling, sailing and rock climbing.
