The restrictions that have been placed on getting out and about due to the global pandemic have left many parents frazzled, to say the least. Being confined to home, with limited contact has left many with a 21st-century version of cabin fever. Those with very young children have been particularly hard hit. It can be tremendously challenging to entertain the very young – and ensure that they can get rid of some of that pent-up energy.
Thankfully these restrictions seem to be easing somewhat – and when it comes time for planning that extra special birthday party caregivers are looking for solutions that will get rid of some of that energy – and provide kids with a healthy helping of fun and the ability to kickstart long-delayed social interaction. These are some of the reasons that the evergreen ‘Bounce House’ is seeing a resurgence in popularity.
However, prior to booking that perfect bounce house, there are some considerations to be taken into account – and some other activities that will complement the bounce house experience and keep young minds and bodies active during party time.
Firstly, choosing the right bounce house can be a challenge. Make sure that you take into account just how much space you have in the yard for the bounce house. You need to make sure that there is adequate space around the periphery of the installation. Excitement can lead to trips and falls – and you want to make sure that the space is clear of any obstructions related to the installation of the bounce house (such as ensuring that the air compressor is far enough away not to present a danger). Make sure that the rental company you select will have an experienced employee present on party day to ensure that the experience is safe and goes off without a hitch.
Then choose the type of bounce house that you prefer. The ere are houses with multiple levels, those that offer wet and dry slide and even those with obstacle courses. The larger and more complex the greater the cost – keep your budget and your space in mind when making your decision.
Activities come next. Match your bounce house to a theme – it makes it much more fun for the kids and opens up a whole world of possibilities for activites. For instance, a castle can serve as the centerpiece for a fairy tale party – and dress-up is then the order of the day. the same applies to a pirate ship. Go with tried and proven activities such as a treasure hunt which can use the bounce house as a focal point. Design goodie bags around your theme.
Lastly, make sure that the rental company you select has a great reputation for providing quality equipment and has been in the business for a while. Go online and peruse the review sites. You’ll find feedback from ordinary people – that feedback can be a lot more reliable than the marketing blurb on a company website.
Once you’ve done your research speak to someone at the company. It’s much more rewarding to have a chat than simply ordering using an online form – and they will have some great ideas when it comes to themes and activities.
Then simply sit back and wait for the smiles and sounds of laughter.
Eating healthy is something that a lot of parents want to teach their children. However, given the number of food that children eat today, vegetables became unpopular. How do you make your children choose vegetables? First, you need to make sure that you are going to be eating vegetables to normalize the presence of vegetables in your home. Next, you don’t want to shock the senses if you are going to feed them with veggies. You want to introduce one or two vegetables. Also, might as well go for the ones that don’t taste bad. This will make sure that they get to love the vegetables first and then they can explore different vegetables.
At times, it might also work if you are going to combine fruits with vegetables. This will help them eat because fruits tend to be sweet and are easy to incorporate in a child’s diet.
And of course, if your children tend to still give you a difficult time, you can always use rewards. Perhaps, they can only get to eat ice cream after dinner if they have completed the vegetables that you served in the dinner table.
One of the biggest problems today is that children end up staying up late at night. There are ways on how you can stop children from developing a bad sleeping habit. First, you have to make sure that they get to spend their energy in the morning. Children love to play and do things that can get their batteries drained. Perhaps, let them swim or play sports. You will be surprised by how exhausted they can be at night.
Next, you also want to make sure that you are also going to turn the lights off in your house at a certain time. This will develop a habit among children that they should be sleeping at night. There are instances when children are still active because people around the house are still doing things. It is also best if you can lead by example. Turn the lights off even in your room and you will be surprised how your children will imitate your sleeping habits.
Also, make sure that you are going to take a closer look at the food that they eat. Sweets and those containing caffeine should be avoided a few hours before bedtime. This will disrupt the way children sleep and make them restless.
