Bounce Like a …… Tell the children that every time you count 1-2-3 then yell out an animal, they have to jump like that animal. Try frog, kangaroo, rabbit, then see what happens when you call out lizard, bird, elephant, fish and snail!!
Tag Team Bounce Races Have the children take turns with this one. Line up 4 children on each side of the moon walk. Make sure there is ample room between each child so they don’t bump into each other. When you say "GO" they bounce their way to the other side and "tag" their partner. Their partner then bounces back to the other side.
Red Light/Green Light When you yell "green light", everyone bounces. When you yell "red light" everyone freezes. Last one to freeze, has to get out. Yell "green light" and everyone else starts bouncing again. Last one in the bounce house wins! You can "up the ante" for this game by offering a prize for each winner. (the prize idea was given by a Mom who had a difficult time getting the children to play this game, because they didn't want to get out of the bouncer).
Simon Says (Kids Sequence Game) Have one kid do a move, such as bouncing on his/her bottom, then standing up again. Then everyone repeats the move. The next kid does the first kid's move, then adds one of his own, like bouncing on one leg three times. Everyone must then do the two moves together. The third kid does the first two moves, then adds one of her own. Everyone must do all three moves now. Anyone who forgets the order of the moves has to sit down. Last one to do all the moves correctly wins! Make sure the moves are safe! No flips or aerial somersaults.
