Summertime is here and the kids are looking for fun things to do on a trampoline! If your kids are anything like mine, they are “bored” and asking for things to do. It does not matter if I tell them to go get on their new bikes, or play tag or hide and seek. They seem disinterested. BUT thanks to having the best trampoline on the block, I kick them outside with these ideas.
SPRING IS HERE
Check out the best trampolines this season!
Fun Things to do on a Trampoline
Turn your Trampoline into a Water Park
With a cool trampoline sprinkler your kids will be outside having fun and moving around. Regardless of the heat, having a trampoline sprinkler means that they will stay cool all summer long! The nice thing about these sprinklers is that they can adjust to any trampoline size and are easy to install!
Make a Ball Pit
Grab some of balls and make a ball pit! Best for younger kids, as it makes it hard to actually bounce! If you have a small toddler trampoline, these balls work great!
Did you know you can use chalk on your trampoline? Grab a few colors and let the kids get creative. Use the hose or wait for the rain and it will be clean again! We always grab one of these giant chalk boxes to keep the kids occupied on the trampoline and on the driveway!
If you have a gymnast in the family, a bouncy surface is a fun way to practice gymnastic moves from cartwheels to tumbles. If you also want to practice inside, consider a gymnastics mat!
Grab Sleeping bags and Pillows
Have a camp out. Kids always love pretending to camp! Give them a snack and sleeping bags and pillows and they will get creative and entertain themselves! You can also grab a trampoline tent online! Check out the top 3 trampoline tents.
Another great summer activity is water balloons! We buy the ones above and it is sooooo much easier for me to get a ton of balloons for them! I have tried buying the ones that you do one at a time and I would rather make 50 balloons in two minutes than spend an hour threading balloons onto the nozzle one by one!
Make up a dance
Turn up the bluetooth and play some music! Let the kids make up a dance and watch their performance. Did you know that they can even dance on pink trampolines these days? If you capture some great moves, use these trampoline instagram captions for your best photos!
Get A Basketball Hoop
Having a basketball hoop on your trampoline gives an extra layer of fun! We have a Springfree Trampoline and the kids use the hoop everyday! If you are looking for a basketball hoop for your trampoline (whatever the brand) check out my guide to How to Choose the Best Basketball Hoop for your Trampoline.
Consider a Trampoline Board
If you have a snowboarder in the family or kids who want to try out a trampoline board, check out this post I have on everything you need to know about a trampoline board.
Keep the Ball Up
Use a large inflatable beach ball and everyone lays down either their heads together in the center. Using arms and legs try and keep the ball in the air! I love that the kids stay active on the trampoline without even realizing it.
