When you’re not jumping this festive season,
here are some fun activities that your family can enjoy this Christmas!
How To Play: Played similar to Simon Says. The player up is “Santa”. Player will say “Santa says hop on one foot”. The children will hop on one foot. Player will say “Stop”. The children are to keep hopping on one foot until player says “Santa says stop”. Repeat for additional activities such as take one baby step forward, step backwards, turn around, sit down. Sometimes Santa will say “Santa says” and sometimes he won’t. It’s a fun game to play with young children.
Christmas Memory Game
What you need: 18 items in box
How To Play: Show the items in the box to the children. Remove one or more items out of the box (without children seeing you). Have the children guess what items are missing. For older children put items on large tray or cookie sheet. Cover. Remove cover for 20-30 seconds and then remove tray from room. On your mark, the children are to write down as many items that they can remember from the tray before you yell, “STOP”. Most correct answers wins.
Face the Gingerbread Man
How To Play: By using only their face, the player must move one Gingerbread Man from their forehead to their mouth and see who can do it the quickest.
Pin the nose on Rudolph
What you need: Big picture of Rudolph
Red circle or orange carrot shape for each child, with adhesive on back and their name on the front
How To Play: Blindfold the player, spin ‘em around and let them try to stick the nose where it’s supposed to go. Give a prize for the player that gets the closest.
From all the team at Springfree™ Trampoline, we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a jumpy New Year.
