Children can be pretty difficult to reign in at parties at events. This problem is made even worse when the party does not revolve around the children such as a company picnic or a family reunion. Sure, we want the children to have as much fun as possible, and it is important for them to have social interaction with their peers, but it is also important for parents to have social time as well, isn't it? So how do we, as parents, find a good form of entertainment that is equally entertaining for the children, as well as physically active so they burn off all of their excited energy, but also requires minimal adult supervision and is still safe?
A great answer to this problem is renting a bounce house to have at the next party or event that you're throwing. A bounce house is a large, four-sided, inflatable structure that basically acts as an oversized, and much safer trampoline. About a dozen to two dozen (size of the structure permitting) children can fit in a bounce house at a time. This can be an excellent option because it centralizes all of the children to one area so you don't have to worry about making sure that they're not running off hurting themselves, etc. This is a very exciting form of entertainment for children. Seriously, you will be blown away by their expressions and excitement once they walk into the yard or park that the bounce house is set up in and realize that they get to enjoy this really fun structure for the entirety of the party. And since the bounce house is a physically active activity, you don't have to worry about the children being extremely hyper and run around bothering the entire party. It's embarassment-free!
Bounce Houses are awesome as well because they can fit any interest types of children. They come in a myriad of different designs styles and themes. For example, if you are throwing a party in the theme of cowboys, then you can get a wild west bounce house. If you are throwing a party that is based mroe towards princesses and knights, then you can get a bounce house that is shaped like a castle, with the entrance shaped like the bridge leading into the front of a castle. Alternatively, if the children at the party have a common interest like Rugrats, Toy Story, or The Disney Princesses, then there are a multitude of different licensed characters available at all sorts of different bounce house providers.
Bounce Houses also can come with all sorts of different features and add-ons such as water features added on like slip-n-slides, and water slides. You can also get features like ball pits or slides that extend from the side of the bounce houses. There are so many different options that you will have to consult with the bounce house company to get a fully comprehensive list of their unique add-ons and extra features.
