6 Bounce House Game Ideas for an Exciting Birthday Party 

If you’re planning to give your kid a special birthday party, you should start planning wisely. Kids now are closer to their phones and laptops, so when the party comes you should have their full attention. The theme, venue and foods should be laid out well. Another amazing idea is renting a bounce house, click here to see the designs. Don’t just let the kids jump around the bouncy house; prepare some amazing games so they can make the most fun out of jumping.

Birthday Party

Switch Place Race 

Before the game begins, assign each child a number. Make them enter the bounce house and sit in a circle formation. The birthday celebrant should stand in the middle. Have the celebrant call two numbers. The child assigned on those numbers should get up and switch their places. They should be fast enough so the celebrant wouldn’t be able to steal one of the empty spots. Whoever is next left standing has the opportunity to call the next numbers.  

Freeze Bounce 

Once you get all the kids in the bounce house, play a fun music. Have them bounce and jump around. Once you stop the music, they should all remain freeze. Anyone who moves while the music is still on freeze will be eliminated from the game. Continue doing so until the song is over or when you already have a winner.  

Bounce Pair Races 

Have four players in the bounce house; pair them together so you have 2 pairs of players. Instruct each pair to stand in opposite corners. Once you give them the “Go!” signal, the players should bounce across the bounce house and switch places. The first pair who’s going to reach the opposite corners will be declared as the winner. Have another pair of players until everyone had their turn. The winning pair will compete with another winning pair until there’s only one winner left.  

Balloon Attack 

Gather the kids around and line them up on the bounce house’s opposite sides. Assign each side a color, make sure to have an equal amount of balloon colors. The players should toss their balloons to the other side without having to cross the line while keeping out the other colors of the other side. Once the game is over, count the balloons on each side. If the team has the least amount of the opposing team’s balloons color, they should be declared the winner.  

Bounce Him Over 

The birthday celebrant will sit in the middle of the bounce house. Have the other players bounce around until the celebrant changes his/her position.  

Second Challenge 

Have the players bounce around in the bounce house for at least 30 seconds. Have someone outside giving the commands like “bounce on two feet” or “bounce on one foot”. The players will follow the command and do it for 30 seconds. Anyone who can’t follow will be eliminated. Commands like imitating an animal or pet like “fly like a butterfly” are also exciting. Continue the game until you have a winner.
