Is your child’s birthday coming up? Throwing a bounce house party spells fun fun fun! Instead of just letting the kids bounce about, add to the fun by preparing a few games. Kids love games at parties and setting them up in an inflatable bounce house can add an extra dimension to the frivolities. Here’s a few ideas:
This age old game can reach new levels when done in a bounce house. This becomes extra fun because the leader can make the players do things that are only possible when in an inflatable. Simon says to bounce on your knees. This would be painful if you were on the floor, but thanks to the softness a bounce house brings, this will not be a problem.
Having a new take on the traditional statue dance, aka stop dance, when the music stops, so should the bouncing. Any child caught jumping in silence will be considered “out” until a lone winner will be left. This is exceptionally fun at the same time hard because dancing is easier to control than bouncing.
Marco Polo is played basically the same- the blindfolded catcher has to find the players by saying “Marco” and players respond with “Polo”. Making this one of the games in a bounce house party is because of two reasons. First is that it is safer for the catcher. It does not matter if he falls or bumps into a wall. The second is that it is more fun. All games are more fun in an inflatable.
This is great for the younger kids at the bounce house party. Have them race on their knees, on one foot, on all fours if you want. You can have the race in teams, by partners, or alone. It is always a good idea to give a small prize like candy to the winner or winners after each race.
This game is always present whenever kids are around. Playing it in an inflatable just adds to the thrill.
Simply by adding balloons to the bounce house and you will already be adding fun. It just adds to the bouncing bliss. Both the younger and the older kids are sure to enjoy.
These are just a few games that you can have at your child’s bounce house party. Be creative and add your own twist to your kid’s favorite ones. Just always remember to follow the safety instructions, pin the tail on the donkey is definitely crossed off the list, and to never leave the children unsupervised.
