Party Game Ideas -
Fun Things to Do with your 3Ds Bouncer Rental!

Renting a Bouncer or Moonwalk is exciting! It arrives, gets set up in the back yard, and the kids go nuts! Sometimes though, after a couple of hours, they are asking you what they can do next. Bouncing is great, but you may need to guide the fun. Even children lose their breath after a while!

You've got this giant inflatable for the entire afternoon - don't let it go to waste! All you need are some great ideas to keep the children having fun in your moonwalk.

We've got some game ideas specifically designed for moonwalk play and separated by age group. Print them out so you can hand the list to a helper if you need to. These party games are simple and fun. Try your own variations of the games to keep things interesting!

Games for Little Children

Bounce Like a... Game
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!!

The Giggle Game
Have one child lie down in one corner of the moon walk, then have the next child lay down at right angles to the first child with his/her head on the first child's stomach. Have a third child lay down with his/her head on the second child's stomach. Keep on until everyone is lying down. Then have the first child say "HA". This will cause the second child to start laughing then the third, then so on.

You may have played this one before, but not in a moon walk!

Balloon Fun
Grab some balloons and toss them in the moonwalk with the children. They can bounce with them and toss them in the air.

Tumble Races
Have the children take turns with this one.

Line up 4 children on one side of the moon walk and when you say "GO" they somersault their way to the other side, touch the wall (or net) and then lay down and roll back to the other side.

Make sure the somersaults are on the floor and NOT in the air.

Red Light/Green Light
When you yell "green light", everyone bounces. When you yell "red light" everyone freezes.

Games for Medium Children

Red Light, Green Light
Shout "Red Light" and everyone has to freeze. Shout "Green Light" and everybody can jump again.

While everyone is in "Red Light" mode, give them instructions to follow when you yell "Green Light".

Things to do:
Pretend to fly like a bird
Roll Around on the floor
Bounce on your behind then back to your feet
Do somersaults on the floor.
Bounce on your knees then back to your feet
Pretend you are popcorn, bouncing around until you POP

Flag Tag
Get a roll of streamers and tear 1 foot lengths off of it. Tuck one end of each streamer into each child's waistband then turn them loose!

The goal is to collect as many other children's streamers while protecting your own. When your streamer is pulled, you have to get out (or sit down).

The winner is the last child still wearing a streamer!

Number Switch
Have the children number off. Make sure they remember their numbers! Then, have them scramble and sit in a circle. Have the birthday child stand in the middle of the circle.

The birthday child then calls out 2 numbers. The children with those two numbers have to get up and trade spots while the birthday child tries to beat them to one of the spots.

The person left standing calls out 2 more numbers and tries to beat those children to a seat.

This one is good because it requires minimal supervision and has most of the children resting (and rolling around during the action).

Games for Older Children

Kids Sequence Game
Have one kid do a move, such as hopping on one leg. Then everyone repeats the move. The next kid does the first kid's move, then adds one of his own. 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.

Port and Starboard
This is a memory and action game.

On the command (from the list below) the children have to do the appropriate action. After a while, start removing the last player to comply, until only one remains.

Port (Run to one side of the moonwalk)
Starboard (Run to the other side)
Captains Coming Aboard (Stand to attention and Salute)
Submarines (Lie on the floor)
Hoist the Mainsail (Run on the spot - like climbing the rigging)
Mess Deck (Sit cross legged on the floor - ready for lunch)
Sharks Ahoy (jump, jump, jump - try to stay off the floor)
Up Periscope (Stand up straight and old hands to eyes as though looking through binoculars)
