Safety Tips for Bounce House Jumpers

Now that you have the Bounce House reserved, what can you do to ensure that the kids inside it will be safe?

-Take off anything hard or sharp they may be wearing: shoes, necklaces, eyeglasses, and jewelry are just a few examples. Any amount of jumping can turn these objects into weapons. To avoid escorting a screaming child from the mix, make sure they have the least opportunity to hurt themselves.

-Ask kids to empty their pockets as well. Have them to transfer everything in their pockets to their shoes and leave them outside with you. Be sure to watch over their stuff so no one steals from them.

-No tricks or rough housing. Expressly tell children that they are not to wrestle, fight, or perform acrobatics while in the bounce house. This also includes jumping in or out of the bounce house. They have no idea what they’re jumping into and can easily injure themselves or another child.

-Finally, give children with health impairments, disease, or other problems another fun activity to substitute for bouncing. Every inflatable is physically challenging and those with health issues should stay away. Give them an alternative that will be just as fun for them to try.

You want your kids to have a good time, but you also want them to come out of the experience just as happy as when they went in. It only takes something small to ruin the experience: a thoughtless kick with a shoe, an awesome dive through the opening, or an irritated medical condition.

Protect your children while letting them have fun with these 4 simple rules. Assign a gate keeper to the opening flap to ensure they are followed.
