We love using our Trampoline in creative ways! In the fall we love to jump in the leaves inside our Trampoline, in the spring we like to make chalk drawings inside our Trampoline – and in the summer we like to add water to our Trampoline play!
Over time we have created a few tried and true Trampoline Water Games that seem to be the most fun. Perhaps some of them will give you and your family some fun summer trampoline ideas!
– We like to start using the trampoline the normal way in the summer, jumping and doing tricks. But of course when its hot out, and your working hard, you get tired and hot a lot faster! It makes the introduction of the cool water a lot sweeter – when you let the kids get a little sweaty first! Then turn on the water!
1. Create a line of water to challenge the jumper to hop over without getting wet- Make the line of water higher and higher with each jump. Make it wiggle back and forth. How long can the jumper elude the spray?
2. Hands Free Spray – If your Trampoline has a place that zips up for exit and entry, try putting the hose nozel in that placce and zipping it up, facing the inside of the Trampoline. Zipped securely, our hose will stay spraying the jumper even while mom and dad do some weeding or sip Ice- T! Of course kids should be supervised at all times inside the Trampoline. But sometimes it’s nice to have your hands free!
3. Change the type of Spray – Use mist spray, use rain drop type spray – experiment! *One tip* for using the hard spray, is to hold the hard spray underneath the trampoline. It will bubble up on the trampoline floor and look like a fountain!
Other Trampoline Water Ideas:
- Toss Water Balloons back and forth, until someone drops one. The game will last longer than on the grass since the trampoline floor is softer!
- Hold the hose in such a way as to create a rainbow right inside your trampoline enclosure. My daughter loves jumping through the Rainbow spray!
- Do you have a sprinkler that’s low to the ground? Hook it up under your trampoline and let the surges of water delight jumpers! Plus, mom and dad don’t have to hold the water source!
- Start by making trampoline chalk drawings on your trampoline, and use water play as a fun way to clean it all off at the end!
How do you like to use your Trampoline! I’d love to hear your Ideas!
