REST AND RELAXATION
The trampoline is a great way to exercise and have fun, but it is also a really fun place to rest and read books in a trampoline tent. Buy one for your trampoline here!
Draw a bullseye in the middle of the trampoline mat. Then get a bucket with sponges and fill it with water.
When it is hot outside and you need something to cool yourself off.... grab your portable sprinkler and hose and throw it under the trampoline and turn it on! You can also use an oscillating sprinkler and have the showers intermittently to sprinkle the kids from above. Better yet you can purchase a Mr. Mister System that attaches to your trampoline here!
While holding your arms up and out standing in the middle of trampoline, you are really doing much more than just standing still. It forces your body to use it's core strength to keep you upright as well as balanced. So even at rest or timing yourself playing a game, standing still is still great exercise on a trampoline!
WATER BALLOON BALL
Fill up an entire bucket of water balloons and let the fun begin. Every person can take a turn jumping in the trampoline while the others stand on the outside trying to hit them with the balloons.
Bubbles do not have to solely be an activity done by itself. Have someone blow bubbles into the air and see how many you can jump up and pop! This is a great way to combine two childhood favorites into one fun game!
Design an active party game for the St. Patrick's Day party that allows the kids to dance, spin and stomp. Affix 10 clover stickers to one-inch-square pieces of white paper. Slip the 10 stickers into 10 green balloons. Blow up the 10 balloons, along with 20 to 30 additional green balloons that don't have stickers inside. Scatter the balloons across the trampoline. Give the guests one minute to stomp or jump on the balloons to break them.
GOLD COIN TOSS
Set up a St. Patrick's-themed game that tests the players' aim and throwing skills. Place an empty, black plastic pot sold at party supply stores three to six feet away from the trampoline. Give the first player five to 10 yellow bean bags to represent pieces of gold. Time each player to see how long it takes him to throw five bean bags into the pot or how many "baskets" he can make in 30 seconds jumping. Make the game easier for younger children by scooting them closer to the bucket.
Each child takes a turn bouncing on their bottom as many times as possible. The next person then tries to bounce more times than the first person. The first person to not be able to surpass the first person will be out!
SMILE IT'S COLD
Drawing in the lightly fallen snow on your trampoline is a fun way to play with your trampoline without damaging it by jumping in the cold. Just be sure to clean the snow off in the winter or buy a Weather Cover to protect it during the harsh winter weather.
JUMP INTO A GOOD BOOK
If you encourage your children to read books, then also encourage them to make a fun and comfortable reading spot on the trampoline outside. Some pillows and a blanket and you will have an instant cozy spot to read for them!
Someone starts out with three "action" moves. After the first person exits the trampoline, the second person copies the first person and adds on an extra move. The first person to not complete the whole sequence of moves is out!
Put five balls in the trampoline then you and your friends start jumping around. Whoever gets hit is out. But... the person that is out can get a ball and try to hit other people if a ball bounces at them. If they throw it and hits somebody they are out! *Remember this only works on a trampoline with an enclosure so the balls don't fall out!
Everyone loves this iconic game with colorful dots! Why not go and purchase large vinyl dots and place them on your trampoline surface in a similar pattern. Use a spinner to take turns and jump from dot to dot. Make it more challenging by going faster or using one foot! Find other trampoline games at JumpSport.com!
Have one person move a jump rope back and forth over the surface of the trampoline. The other child on the trampoline then tries to keep jumping over it back and forth without it touching them.
Drawing with chalk on the trampoline is a fun way for children to create their own games in the trampoline. Challenge your children to figure out what kinds of games could be developed and how they are played. Keeping score, pictures and shapes to jump into are just a few ways to incorporate the GamePak from JumpSport and enjoy your trampoline even more!
Small inflatable toys can be a really fun way to enhance your outside trampoline games!
As the spring warms up the outdoors what better way to enjoy your trampoline than water balloons. Whether you are popping them with your feet or being a moving target, water balloons are a fun way to cool off as the months heat up! You could also buy a misting system for your trampoline here.
Why not incorporate snacks with the afternoon jumping time? You could make "Jump themed" snacks that the children can help make with you after they are done playing outside!
Now that school is in full swing why not encourage your children's study habits by letting them study on the trampoline and then rewarding them by having them jump after they are finished!
If it is pouring rain outside with no chance to go out and jump...take a look at the instructions in our Printable Games to make these darling little paper boats. Find the nearest puddle to have a race.
OBSTACLES IN THE RAIN
Make up your own competition, that include relay races, hula hooping, water balloon toss and finally a jump off in the trampoline. Many everyday games are more challenging when it is rainy because the equipment is slippery so be very careful when playing in the rain!
Set up a basket on the outside of your trampoline and enclosure and use a ball to try and bounce into the basket. It is a fun hand and eye coordination game as well as fun to play with more than one friend. Note: do not have friends stand close to the basket so they do not get hit!
NOTHING BUT NET
When it comes to trampoline safety nothing is better than a trampoline enclosure by JumpSport so take the time to clean off your trampoline in the winter months.
SCHOOL IS COOL
Adding and subtraction can be fun really fun when you incorporate the trampoline. Get the chalk out, flash cards and have your child write out numbers from 1 through 10 and have them jump on the right answers!
CUSTOMIZE YOUR TRAMPOLINE
Removable vinyl cut outs are becoming very popular these days for wall art, but why not use the darling patterns to customize your trampoline pad? You can add their names, favorite jumping words or jumping animals on the trampoline. Be sure to find vinyl that has protection from fading.
CRACK THE EGG
The child who is in the middle sits in the middle of the trampoline and holds in their knees close to their chest with their arms. The other children jump around the "egg" until they let go of their legs! Take turns seeing how many jumps a person can hold their legs for.
HORSE OF COURSE
Have the children sit in a circle on the pad inside of the trampoline enclosure. Each child can take turns doing jumping tricks,splits, basket ball shots, and twirls while the next child needs to mimic the first action and add a trick. Just as "horse" is played on a basket ball court. Buy a basketball set for your trampoline right here!
Everyone has them... those cute, cuddly, comrades that snuggle with us and soothe our souls. A smile embedded in each and every one, our stuffed animals are fantastic, but don't just let them sit there and collect dust!! Bring one or one hundred into your trampoline and figure out fun games to include them in! You can play hot potato, have a tea party, or just toss them back and forth...
