Useful memories: Elastic band jumping / Pro pametniky: Skakani gumy

rubberband jumpingThis will bring you back, my Czech buddies! Not sure how is this game is called in English (if there is even a name for it) but we used to play it all the time when we were kids. Why? because there was not much else to do after school when you lived in the city during the communist times! All the TV programs started no earlier than 4pm, there was no technology and really no woods to get lost in. So we just played this game on the sidewalk for hours.

I showed it to my girls and they were kind of interested; then I showed it to my Czech girlfriends and we got way into it :).

I bet you even if you only stare at the picture for 30 seconds some straaaaange memories will come back!

CZ: Kdy jste si naposledy vzpomneli na skakani gumy?? Bude tomu asi nejaky ten patek,co? Me holky jsou na to jeste male, ale s mymi ceskymi kamaradkami jsme se s tim nedavno dosti vyblbly :).

I kdyz se na tu fotku jen na 30 sekund zahledite, vsadim se, ze k vam pripluji vzpominky, ktere jste ani nevedeli, ze je mate.

If you liked this post buy me a coffee! (Suggested:$3 a latte $8 for a pound) Thanks!

    It’s called chinese jump rope in US English. We played all the time as kids and that was 40+ years ago.

    Remember, you keep putting the band higher and higher until it is just right below your butt? I can’t believe we were able to jump that high!
