Ideas for Making Play Dates Fun and Interactive

Play dates are important parts of your child’s social development, and the more fun they are, the more your child will want to take part. The key to a good play date is planning activities that are fun and interactive, whether you have the play date at home or at a favorite location like BounceU. Make a play date at your house one of the most sought-after invitations in town with these tips.

Limit Your Guest List

Having too many children over to play at one time will make it harder for everyone to be included in activities and could lead to kids feeling left out. It’s harder for you to manage large groups as well. In many cases, it’s good to have just one child over for a play date in your house. If you plan to take the kids to an activity elsewhere, a small group of up to five can work. Start with small groups and only expand after you see how your child handles playing multiple friends at once.

Plan Activities

Although you don’t want to over-manage the play date, and you do want to leave plenty of time to kids to come up with their own, planning activities will ensure that things go smoothly. Focus on hands-on activities that get kids moving and thinking. Let kids build a time capsule, create a skit or dance routine, or decorate their own t-shirts. Getting kids out of the house for activities can work as well. BounceU’s Open Bounce sessions can be a great activity for kids looking for play date fun.

Time Your Play Date Wisely

For the convenience of parents, play dates should have a clear start and end time. Be sure to choose the times wisely. For younger children, it is especially important to consider nap and feeding times. Keep in mind that if your play date time coincides with a typical mealtime, you should provide that meal. Hungry kids get cranky quickly and may not play as well together.

BounceU is guaranteed to make any play date better, with our gun inflatables and games. Call us at (516) 986-4518 to find out more about our party place near Farmingdale.


Strategies for Keeping Kids Active During the Summer

Summer break is a time for kids to shake off the stress of school, but for many kids, it’s also a tempting time to stay in bed for half of the day and to spend the other half playing video games. With no recess or required PE classes, how can you keep your kids active during the summer months? The inflatables at BounceU are a great place for your kids to get active. These ideas will also help.

Sign Up for Classes

During the summer, there are many different camps and classes designed to keep kids active. This can be the perfect time to let your child try martial arts, baseball, swimming, or another sport or activity that has always interested him or her. If your child’s school offers summer camps that focus on physical activity or that help kids train for team tryouts that will happen in the fall, sign your child up for a few sessions for an easy way to add activity into his or her schedule.

Host a Game Day

Kids will be more likely to get active when their friends are involved. Host a play date in which you hold a game day at your house. Work with your kids to set up various challenges that your visitors have to complete. You can even host a team sports tournament in your back yard for kids and their friends. Other parents will be thrilled that you’re getting their kids off the couch and moving as well.

Try an Open Bounce

Open Bounce sessions at BounceU are so much fun that your kids won’t even know that they’re actually doing something that is good for their health. Let your kids bounce across our inflatables for a great, active day.
