    Make It Yourself Rubber Band Jump rope kits are available online and at a lot of learning stores and toy stores. The kits generally include rubber bands, along with either wooden or plastic handles to put on each end. You do not need to purchase a kit to make a rubber band jump rope, but the kits already include clean rubber bands and the handles so some people believe that purchasing a kit makes it easy,because there are the right number of rubber bands already included and you are ready to just sit down and make it, complete with fully illustrated instructions. Some of the kits include latex bands which they claim hold up longer then regular rubber bands.

    The directions that someone else already gave are probably the best instructions for making one yourself without a kit.

    Good luck to you!

    I just found a site with thousands of downloadable woodworking plans, it s really great. You can check it out here ( ) Here is an honest review : If you want to start a woodworking project, you need all the necessary information, including schematics, blueprints, materials lists, dimensions etc. That is where TedsWoodworking comes in. The plans are clearly drawn and there're step-by-step explainations of how the plan should be done and put together. There are several other sites whose collection of plans have the dimensions totally wrong without any indication of parts lists, material lists or the tools needed. If you're one of those people who have bought plans like this in the past, TedsWoodworking will change your perception. In Ted's Woodworking you will get everything you need: Diagrams which are detailed with a full set of dimensions, step-by-step instructions how to start your project and the necessary materials for that particular project. All the woodworking tools you will need: If you are a beginner or have done some woodworking you will find these plans easy-to-follow as the instructions are very clearly written. The woodworking plans are straightforward so they are not complicated at all. Even if you are a total newcomer to woodworking you will simply be able to master all the techniques that are needed and the woodworking skills very quickly by following the concise and clear instructions. Another thing which is so great about these woodworking plans is that there have been some videos included and there are some to guide you in how to build benches home furniture dog houses bird feeders sheds and much much more. There is also a lifetime member acess included in the package and you get these extras for no cost to you as they are free with no additional charges at all! This alone is worth the entire price for TedsWoodworking. Ted Mcgrath is a very dedicated and experienced woodworker who knows what he is talking about when it comes to woodworking and DIY projects s he has been a woodworker for many many years. There is only one drawback that we could find and that being with 16,000 woodworking plans you are bound to get some which look a little disorganized but that is understandable as it is very difficult to place all these plans into their proper categories. Secondly, it might take you a little longer to do the downloads on because of the size of them. But the members area include an option to upgrade to the DVD so you can save time on downloading. I've been a carpenter for almost 36 years, and I haven't found anything like this for less than 10's of thousands of dollars.Here's the bottom line: If you are planning to start on your woodworking project, this isn't something you SHOULD use, it's something that you would be insane not to.

    You can 'tie' the bands together by pulling on end of the free on through the end of the chain (or the first) and then the other end of the free one through the first end. Pull on till the knot is closed into a square knot or reef knot. Close into a loop by tying one band into a reef knot going through both ends of the chain first.

    But it will be a lot of work and not strong.

    If you want to jump with elastic, try to get a card of elastic as used to be used in sewing. Or go to the toy store, they might have special made elastic jump ropes.

    You jump ropes like these by having two people standing at the ends, inside the loop, loop round their ankles.

    You jump first with one foot on each side of the loop, next within the loop, next pick one side up with your feet while skipping over the other, so you are within the loop the loop crossed over.

    And so on.

    After all jumps have been done by all people you raise the elastic to your knees, hips, armpits,....

    If you miss a jump you have to replace the person standing in the loop, or stand out at the side.
