No Bounce Required: Other Great Activities Using the Springfree
Jul 24, 2015
If there’s one thing you can count on kids doing, it’s using their imagination. This blog will help you take a page out of their book with some ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas for getting the most out of your Springfree.
Whether it’s a cave to hide from monsters, a spaceship to take you to Mars or a venue for hosting tea parties, a fort holds a world of possibilities. Throw a sheet over your trampoline and create an adventure for the whole family. It’s the simple things that can create hours of fun and quality time everyone can enjoy. A favourite at a birthday party or a great way to encourage the kids to get out of the house. Throw in a few pillows or blankets, their favourite toys and let them enjoy their secluded fort for hours of fun.
*Our top tip – Use a lightweight tarp over the top if it’s for overnight use. Condensation could make it feel like it has rained even if it hasn’t! Or if you have a small tent, you could put that up on the trampoline for a real life campaign experience. Check out our blog post on Camping in the Backyard for great ideas and tips.
A great option for those warm summer nights is hosting a movie night for your family and friends. Build a comfortable pillow-filled area with a few sleeping bags on the trampoline and the whole family can settle in with some popcorn. Make a screen with a king sized sheet and a projector and you’ve got yourself an outdoor movie theatre. Follow our tips on Hosting a DIY Movie Night for snack, décor and seating ideas.
*Our top tip - this is a great activity to get the older kids involved with.
Elevate your picnic! Set up a blanket on the trampoline, lay out a spread of delicious food and enjoy some family time in your own backyard.
*Our top tip – Keep the cutlery away from the trampoline and of course no jumping around the food. For great snack and meal ideas for a picnic, check out our Pinterest page.
Do you have a budding performer in the family desperate for a stage to showcase their skills? Set up seating around the trampoline and let your kids put on an open-air performance.
*Our top tip - This is a great way to encourage and foster talent.
Because using markers and crayons on your walls requires way too much work to clean up, hand out the chalk chalk and let your little artists express themselves on the trampoline. The Springfree mat is a great canvas and when the chalk runs out, hose it off or let the rain do the work for you.
*Our top tip – Try drawing some hopscotch squares or having an art competition for hours of fun.
