A trampoline may be primarily for jumping, but there are so many other neat things you can do on its bouncy surface. From sleeping under the stars to watching movies, a trampoline can become a backyard clubhouse for the kids all summer.
Five surprising things you can do on a Springfree trampoline
Have a sleepover ON your trampoline
Believe it or not, kids like to sleep out on the trampoline. The netting keeps the bugs out and allows the breezes to flow through so it doesn’t get steamy (or smelly!)
Cool off while you jump
When it’s smoking hot out and the kids are mopey, and no one feels like leaving the house, hose them down on the trampoline. Even better, set up a sprinkler underneath the trampoline and watch them shriek!
Host an outdoor movie night
A big bowl of popcorn, a cozy blanket and your favourite family movie, there’s only one thing that tops that – being outside in your own backyard. Well now, you can do both at the same time! Here’s how to have a DIY movie night.
Present a shadow puppet show
At night, clip a white sheet to the front of the trampoline. Shine a couple of flashlights on the sheet from the inside of the trampoline and take turns putting on a shadow puppet show!
Chalk the mat
Chalk the mat with designs or as a create an active learning activity. How? Simply write the alphabet and numbers with chalk on the mat scrambled up, call them out and have the kids jump to the correct answer.
