1. Catch and Bounce 

Got a tennis ball lying around? Perfect! That’s all you need to increase the bounce level in your backyard. A ball-based game, it requires youngsters to time their bounce so that they catch the ball in the air. A 2 person game, it requires one person to stand outside the trampoline and one to be the catcher inside, meaning it’s a great opportunity for parents to get involved as the thrower. Your child can accumulate points for each catch won out of 10.

2. Piggy in the Middle

The fun doesn’t stop there! A throwback on a classic childhood game with a twitst, this fun-filled activity requires three players: one being the piggy in the middle of the trampoline, and the two others positioned on either side of the trampoline from outside. The players outside of the trampoline then take turns passing the ball between one another, as the child inside attempts to catch the ball.

3. Bounce to The Beat

This is a game of timing, coordination and expertly refined jumping skills! Plug in your device to some speakers or crank up your phone on loudspeaker and play some of your favourite tunes. This bouncing version of the capture the treasure game we played as kids, it makes for an exciting party game. Children can jog about the perimeter of the trampoline while music plays and when the parent yells “bounce”, they must bounce to the beat of the song. Anybody who is still standing when the music stops or the song changes is ‘out’, and those left standing are the winners.
