A Barrel of Monkeys Challenge #6-Skipping Rope

Challenge #6 is a children's fun toy-a skipping rope!

Do you remember some of the little songs you would sing while skipping?

"Apple, oranges, peaches, plums, tell me when your birthday comes..." and "Cinderella dressed in yellow went upstairs to kiss a fellow. In a mistake she kissed a snake..."

Use this toy, photo or colors to inspire you to create.

Remember, you just have to use this toy as a jumping off point to inspire you! You could use a picture of a child skipping, or use rope (or twine) on a project. Or you could be inspired by the colors in the picture. 

We're hoping that more people will participate in this fun challenge!! Get your friends to play along!! Challenge them to get creative!!

There were only 2 to participate so you will each receive the badge!
