  • Tips for Planning a Food Allergy-Friendly Birthday Party

  • Easy Strategies for Strengthening Sibling Bonds

    Some siblings can be close, while others want nothing to do with each other. To help siblings enjoy each other’s company, there are some easy strategies to try out. Bonding activities, like jumping in a bounce house together, are just some of the ways to strengthen the bond between siblings. Here is a quick look at some more strategies:

    Plan Bonding Activities

    Bonding activities can include those the siblings only do together or activities the entire family does. Plan a night out at your local party place for kids. The siblings can jump together and have fun in the bounce houses, and the parents can enjoy watching their kids. Many bounce house locations also allow adults into the inflatables, so the entire family can bond.

    Plan Individual Activities

    Everyone needs some time to themselves, including siblings. Give each child his or her own sporting or musical activity to engage in. Plan parent-child outings with each child separately. This gives each child a sense of individualism and knowing he or she is valued apart from the sibling.

    Encourage Teamwork

    Siblings can bond over shared chores and teamwork. Encourage siblings to perform household chores together, such as washing dishes or sweeping. Parents can also encourage teamwork through play. There are many team-oriented games and activities that can be played at home or at a party place.

    Find a Shared Passion

    Some siblings are complete opposites, but they usually share at least one passion. Find this passion—such as dancing, coloring, or sports—and encourage the children to enjoy it together. They can easily bond over an activity that excites them both.

    Stay Out of Fights

    As tempting as it is to break up fights, try to allow the siblings to work out the problems themselves. By allowing an argument to unfold, siblings can learn negotiation, compromise, and compassion, which will make them better siblings and better people.

    Come down to BounceU for our family bonding nights and cosmic bounce times. We believe all families can be brought together through our inflatables in Farmingdale. Please call us at (516) 986-4518 to learn more.

  • Tips for Planning a Standout Fundraiser

    Fundraisers are meant to earn money for a charitable cause and give your donors something fun to talk about. In addition to jumping in bounce houses and having a fun night out, your donors can have a great time at your next fundraiser with these helpful tips:

    Tip #1: Determine a Clear Budget

    Part of making your fundraiser successful is to determine the budget early on. Your budget will be dependent on the food, location, and entertainment you want to offer and how much money those desires will require. If you can find different ways to lower your costs, then you can raise even more money. For example, look for donated party decorations, food, and other charitable contributions to help reduce your budget.

    Tip #2: Develop a Host Committee

    To garner as many donations and attendees, you need to get the word out about your fundraiser. Choose key members of your organization, the community, or your personal circle of friends to join a host committee. This committee will be tasked with planning the fundraiser, earning donations for the fundraiser, and attracting as many people as possible to the event. Make sure your committee members know the details of your organization, the event, and have a lot of connections in the community.

    Tip #3: Find Great Entertainment

    Even though your donors are happy to donate to a charitable cause, they should also be rewarded for their donations. Find great entertainment that will keep your donors happy and help draw unsure donors to attend your fundraiser. You can look to musical entertainment or branch out to different party places, such as Bounce U. Your donors can feel and act like kids again while playing on various inflatables and having fun in a kids’ party place.

    Bounce U isn’t just a party place for kids in Farmingdale. We are proud to help our community by hosting fundraisers Monday thru Thursday. Please call us at (516) 986-4518 to reserve a spot for your fundraiser.
