Michelle Obama Jumps Double Dutch, Nickelodeon Suspends Programming To Promote Healthy Living (VIDEO)

She's danced and Dougied her way around the world to promote her "Let's Move!" campaign aimed at solving the epidemic of childhood obesity. FLOTUS' next number? Double dutch.

Michelle Obama was spotted last month jumping rope with DC-area kids on the South Lawn of the White House while filming a PSA for Nickelodeon's Worldwide Day of Play (WWDoP).

The 8th Annual event takes place on September 24 this year, from noon to 3 p.m., when Nickelodeon will suspend all programming on all of its channels and websites to encourage kids and families to get up and get active. Nick also plans to host "the largest celebration of play ever in Washington, D.C." on that day, according to company reps.

In another spot, slated to air on September 10, The First Lady tells kids why she loves to play. "I love to run and jump; it makes me happy," she says.
