Bounce off the Birthday Cake and Sweets in a Bouncy Castle
There are no greater childhood memories that birthday parties filled with sugar and fun. Although sugar is something parents try to control and minimize, a birthday party is often the exception. Despite the social and developmental benefits of attending a birthday party, there is always one negative side effect: hyperactive kids filled with sugar. You don’t have to give up the birthday cake at a birthday party, you just need to rent a bouncy castle so your kids can bounce off the birthday cake and sugar intake.
A healthy relationship with sweets
It’s no secret that childhood obesity is a big problem, not just in the US, but across the globe. Controlling our kids’ sugar intake is just one step to keeping them healthy. Depriving your kids of sugar, however, can also have adverse effects. It’s okay to give your kids treats, as long as you’re being responsible. When every other kid is hopped up on sugar at the next birthday party, denying your kid the chance to participate can create problems socially. We’re not saying you have to give into peer pressure, but it’s also important to enjoy the sweeter things in life. Allowing kids to enjoy sugar every now and again will also help them develop a healthy relationship with sweets.
Bounce off the calories
If you’re serving cake and concessions at your kids birthday party, work in activities to help them run off the sugar. Bouncing is a great workout that doesn’t feel like a workout. In fact, don’t even mention it to the kids. Rent a bouncy castle and let the kids bounce off the calories from the birthday cake and other concessions.
You can also upgrade your bouncy castle to include an obstacle course, a basketball hoop, ladders, and slides. The bigger your bounce house and the more activities it includes, the more calories the kids will burn.
Birthday party concessions
Rent concessions along with your bouncy castle. Increase the fun with popcorn, Sno-Kones, and cotton candy. Just be sure to have plenty of water on hand to keep the kids hydrated.
