The object of Helicopter is to jump over the jump rope as it passes by you without getting hit. One child is the helicopter, and stands with the rope fully extended, swinging it around in a circle on the ground. Those lined up on the circumference of the circle must time their jumps to avoid a crash with the helicopter. Once jumpers have cleared a few rotations, the helicopter can raise the rope in higher and higher increments to make the game more challenging.
