Four Benefits of Bouncy Castles for Kids

Bouncy castles have been around for years. There are larger versions for fairs and carnivals and smaller versions that can be rented or purchased for home use. Even adults must admit they are pretty fun to jump around in, so are there any benefits of bouncy castles for kids? Well, definitely! Here are a few reasons why Essex bouncy castle hire are great for children.  

A great workout

One of the main benefits of bouncy castles for children is that it’s a great way to encourage exercise or help with weight loss. Even children that have a “normal” body weight still need to exercise regularly and creating an exercise routine for a child is almost impossible. Kids will need a little bit of adult supervision on bouncy castles, but they can bounce on their own. It’s recommended that kids exercise for 20 to 30 minutes a day, three times a week. This can be hard to maintain, so having a bouncy castle in the garden is a great way to get kids active and having fun.

Promotes social interaction

Children of course can have fun on a bouncy castle alone, but they tend to attract children’s attention easily – and who doesn’t love having someone to play with? It’s the perfect excuse to get together with friends! Children will of course need to learn to take turns and play well with each other, being conscious of their actions so not to bump into each other whilst playing. Clear rules should be explained to children prior to using the bouncy castle, such as how many kids can be on at one time and whether or not shoes should be worn etc.

Great sensory outlet

Some kids just need to jump! And their internal sensory system will thank them for it. Bouncing on bouncy castles and trampolines is a great way to self-regulate, whether it’s to help calm down or wake up your system.

Gets kids outside

Some children just hate being outside, so it can be a struggle trying to prise them away from their video games and the TV. With bouncy castles however, it won’t take much persuasion for children to get outside and bounce on them. Encourage them to enjoy the sunshine, get in some exercise and enjoy the fresh air.
