The new school year is just around the corner, and you may be looking for the perfect way to ring in the conclusion of summer. If your little ones can’t get enough trampoline time, try these creative ways to enjoy the outdoors while the weather’s still warm.

Make a Blanket Fort and Sleep Under the Stars

Want to experience the joy of camping without leaving the comfort of your backyard? Set up a blanket fort on the trampoline and spend the evening under the starry sky. This take on a traditional campsite is ideal for young children who may have trouble spending an entire weekend in the wilderness. The plush, springy trampoline mat is a preferable alternative to sleeping on the hard ground, and you can replicate the cozy feeling of a tent by securing blankets over the safety net. To instantly transform your trampoline into a spacious, comfy tent, pick up the Outback Trampoline Tent by JumpSport. For the finishing touches, just add snacks, pillows, and a movie on a laptop to make great summer memories.

Trampoline Chalkboard

Kids of all ages love doodling with chalk. If you don’t have a chalkboard in the home, take the arts and crafts session to the backyard trampoline. The mat makes a perfect canvas for drawing colorful creations, and it keeps the mess contained to the outdoors. Hopscotch is a fun game to play on the trampoline, and Twister is also a classic choice to enjoy on the mat. Cleanup is a breeze–just rinse the area with water or wait for a rainstorm to take care of it. If you’d like to take the guesswork out of choosing the perfect trampoline games, JumpSport has you covered with their Party Pak. This bundle includes a book of 20 games, sidewalk chalk in assorted colors, and additional props to accompany the illustrated book of trampoline games.

Dance Party

Ready to end summer with a bang? Choose your favorite party tunes and let the kids have a dance party on the trampoline. Spin moves and jumps are a lot more fun when you can catch some air time, and your AlleyOOP trampoline is designed to deliver maximum bounce. Most AlleyOOP products are big enough to accommodate several jumpers, so your family can enjoy a lively dance off without feeling crowded.

There’s no shortage of ways to keep your kids entertained when you have a trampoline in the yard.
