12.  Cloud watching.

13.  Star gazing.

20.  Read books.

21.  Blow bubbles on trampoline.

22.  Have a tea party.

23.  Make a giant fort.

24.  Learn – Parents write the alphabet and numbers with chalk on the mat scrambled up, call them out and have your kids jump to the correct answer.

25.  Fill the trampoline with balloons or water balloons.

26.  Cleaning party – load up with soap and clean and jump. Be careful! Surface will get slippery!

27.  Make a laser course on the mat out of yarn and try not to touch it.

28.  Practice soccer into the net.

29.  Draw a race track with chalk on the mat and race your toy cars around.

30.  Make a twister game board.

31.  Dance party.

32.  Jump rope snake – Have one person stand outside the trampoline and move a jump rope back and forth over the surface of the mat in an “s” formation. Then one child tries to jump over the rope {aka “snake”} without getting “bit”. If they touch it, the children switch places.

33.  Memory Game – Everyone sits around the perimeter of the trampoline along the edge. One person does a “trick” in the center of the jumping surface. The next person then has to copy the first person’s trick and adds one of their own. Continue with each child doing the tricks before them and adding their own. If someone forgets a trick or gets it out of order, they are out and the game continues until only one child is left.

34.  Just JUMP!

35.  Put glow stick in balloons for glow in the dark jumping.

36.  Simon Says.

37.  Play the basketball shooting game, ‘HORSE’, from outside the trampoline with the FlexrHoop.

38.  Jump with a giant beach ball, but don’t let it touch you!

47.  Science everything – we all know that learning about science while doing helps you retain what you've learned, but trampolines make that about a thousand times more fun. Teach the principles of gravity, weights, friction and static electricity while laughing and getting some great exercise.

48. Fitness routines. 

49.  Dance with trailing silk scarves.

50.  Sensory teaching and development.
