Sick and tired of the same old boring routine on your rebounder? Did you know you can use a mini trampoline for things other than staying in shape and bouncing up and down? You can get more out of your tramp with a little bit of creativity. We have put together examples of games you can perform on your mini trampoline allowing you to continue having fun with it for many years.
The following trampoline activities are specifically for kids and parents. These can be performed both indoors and outdoors so that your children can savor active play in almost any weather conditions. Prior to trying these types of activities, ensure you have picked the best and safest mini trampoline for your kid.
Count n 'Bounce – For kids just learning to count, a fantastic game to reinforce numbers is this counting game. Simply have your little one count (one, two, three, four …) each and every time they bounce. After they have counted as high as possible, they have to stop bouncing. They can then start again from the beginning. This may seem like a super easy exercise, but it will attain a couple of things. First, it encourages your little one to try learning to count higher to achieve more bounces per round. Second of all, it will help strengthen the numbers they previously understand by tying them to a physical activity. Lastly, it gives your youngster a reason to exercise!
I've Got Rhythm – Another great approach to indulge your child in activity on the trampoline is to play music while they bounce. Have them then try jumping to the rhythm of the song. For added fun, rotate between slow and fast songs for variety.
Stop and Jump – For a play on the old classic “red light, green light” game, try “stop and jump” with your youngster. Select a predetermined number, for instance, twenty-five. When you say “Go”, the kid starts off trying to get to 25 bounces. Whenever you say “Stop”, the little one should stop bouncing. If they fail to stop bouncing, they have to start again. It is hard to stop bouncing on a mini trampoline, particularly when jumping high, so your kids must learn to control their rebounding to be successful.
Catch the Ball – To truly improve hand eye coordination, try throwing a foam or light rubber ball to your child when they are bouncing. As soon as they get it, they can pitch it to you as they continue to leap. Reflexes will be tested here, but make sure your child is skilled on the mini trampoline so that they have much less chance of falling off.
The other activities listed here can be entertaining for everyone. As usual, be sure to stick to the right basic safety procedures for your model of trampoline.
Ball Return – You can utilize your trampoline for activities other than leaping. Place the trampoline against a wall in an angle and toss a small ball at it to utilize it as being a ball return. You can use ping pong balls, tennis balls, or baseballs. We suggest implementing this particular exercise outdoors, as a powerful toss could send your ball a far distance.
Competitive Games – Get your friends or family involved in rebounding by having friendly competitive events. Who could bounce for the longest time without stopping? Who can balance on one leg the longest? Who can do ten bounces the fastest? There are many ways for you to hold competitions to determine who will reign as the mini trampoline champion!
These are just some examples of games you could perform on your mini trampoline. With a little creativity I know you can think of a lot more.
