• Teaching Your Kids Healthy Ways to Eat

    Teaching kids to eat healthy and get the activity they need can be difficult, but it is easier if you focus on things that your kids will enjoy so much that they don’t even realize the rewards they are reaping. Kid-friendly healthy food options and fun activities like a day at BounceU can help your kids get on the right path.

    Watch this video for tips for making healthy food swaps. Choosing wheat bread for sandwiches and replacing reduced-fat peanut butter, which often has more sugar, with a full-fat variety are just some examples of kid-friendly healthy eating habits.

    At BounceU , kids not only have a great time, but they also get a fun-filled session of healthy physical activity. Whether you’re looking for an action-packed family day or a great idea for a kid’s birthday party, we have your family covered.

  • Fun Family Activities for Busting Holiday Stress

    The holidays are about fun and togetherness, but they can also be surprisingly stressful for parents and kids alike. Sometimes, the best way to enjoy the season is to take a break from all of the festivities and focus on having a low-stress good time together. At BounceU , we can be part of your holiday stress relief plan, whether you need something to do with the kids on a surprise slow night or something to keep the visiting cousins entertained. Here are some suggestions for ways your family can bust holiday stress and get back into the real reason for the season.

    Plan a Movie Night at Home

    In some cases, holiday stress is simply the result of overstimulation, especially when young ones begin to feel the pressure. Take things down a notch and spend some time together as family enjoying a movie at home instead of heading out for another evening of festivities. Enjoy a family-favorite holiday classic, or pick something that lets you forget about the holidays for a few hours completely. Simply sitting together in peace and quiet in the comfort of your house is all you need to refocus your energies and get back on track with your holiday activities.

    Share Your Good Fortune

    The holidays can be full of pressure to shop, buy, cook, and get more and more, but you can help ease the stress of the consumer side of the season by sharing your good fortune with others. As a family, spend a weekend morning volunteering at a soup kitchen or put together a care package for a family in need. This opportunity to reflect on everything you have while giving to people who need your help is the perfect way to get re-centered and keep stress at bay.

    Start Bouncing

    BounceU is the ideal place to burn off holiday stress. Bring the kids to an Open Bounce and let them get out all of that extra energy while being active and having a great time. Everyone will feel the relief of a fun evening in our bounce castles.

    Start a new holiday tradition and visit BounceU with your family this season. Find out more about our open sessions as well as our kids party ideas in Farmingdale by calling (516) 986-4518.

  • How Field Trips Support Student Learning

    Far from being vacation days away from the classroom, field trips play an important role in student learning. Kids learn invaluable lessons that can’t be replicated in the classroom and are helpful for students of all ages. At BounceU, we make planning field trips easy for schools, daycares, camps, and other student groups, with full support from our team throughout the planning process. Here are some of the ways field trips help to make support students’ learning and influence how they succeed when they are back in their classrooms.

    Better Social Skills

    School isn’t just about memorizing facts from books. It also gives kids the opportunity to build and refines social skills that serve them throughout their lives. Field trips give students the opportunity to interact in ways they can’t in the classroom, as they have new, shared experiences and spend time with fellow students outside of their normal peer group. The relationships that are established during field trips can profoundly impact the social relationships students have back in the classroom. By putting them in situations in which they interact with students outside of their usual circle also helps them build empathy and understanding of people who are different than them.

    Exposure to New Ideas

    On field trips, students get a close-up look at ideas, places, and people that are new to them. Seeing these new ideas can change the way they view the world around them and influence how they approach future learning. This real-world experience cannot be replicated in the classroom simply by lecturing about something new.

    Excitement About Academic Concepts

    Field trips let teachers make concepts they are teaching the classroom come alive in new and unexpected ways. At BounceU, by playing in out bounce castles, students can learn lessons about the health benefits of exercise, physics, anatomy, biology, and much more. Students can get a renewed interest in their schoolwork by seeing real-world applications of the concepts they are learning.
