If you are planning a bounce party in the Suffolk or Nassau County area, you may want some party game ideas. While any child will enjoy just bouncing around in an inflatable bouncer at a children’s birthday party, it is a good idea to have some organized activities to encourage safe, fun play. Many children are capable of coming up with their own game ideas, but there are a number of classic party games that are exciting to play in a bouncy setting. When supervising children’s playtime in an inflatable bouncer, have these suggestions at the ready to guarantee a genuinely pleasant party.
Capture the Flag
Capture the Flag is a lot more fun in an inflatable bouncer. This classic schoolyard game is played in teams. Each team is assigned a color, and each child wears a flag of that color in his waistband. Larger colored flags are placed equidistant around the inside perimeter of the bouncer. The teams must protect the larger flag and the flags on their waistbands, while also attempting to steal the other teams’ flags. If a child has his flag stolen from his waistband, he is out of the game. The team who collects the most flags at the end of the game wins.
There are a number of fun balloon games that are easy to play during bounce parties. One simply requires tossing a number of small balloons into the bounce house and letting the kids jump around collecting them. Kids can also be instructed to bat balloons back and forth without allowing them to touch the ground, or play “monkey in the middle” with balloons.
An adult should lead this game, giving the children various commands. If the adult includes the phrase “Simon says” before his command, the children should do what the adult says. If the kids don’t hear “Simon says,” they should not follow the instructions. Any child who follows a command that did not start with “Simon says” is out of the game.
