Summer time is finally here! Summer trampoline games using the hose are a great way to have the kids out actively enjoying the great weather while still staying cool.

We love playing these cooling games with our kids. Springfree Trampoline is the perfect backyard playground all year long. Did you know that Springfree has recently received 2 independent safety ratings for the safest trampoline?

Our team had a blast coming up with 5 simple games for the kids (and adults) to play. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen before and re-apply during any outside activities. Have fun!

5 Cooling Summer Trampoline Games:

Laser Tag:

Player 1 holds the hose & stands off the trampoline with their eyes closed. Set the hose to “JET”.  Players on the trampoline try and avoid being tagged by the jet of water.

Water Balloon Jump:

Fill water balloons and place on the trampoline… stand back and let the fun happen! To avoid any potential ankle injuries, remind kids to be mindful of not landing on the balloons on their feet.. that’s what bottoms are for.

Over / Under:

Player 1 holds the hose & stands off the trampoline. Set the hose to “JET” & hold the water stream steady.  Player 1 calls out whether the other players need to go OVER or UNDER the water.

Player 1 holds the hose & stands off the trampoline. Set the hose to “JET” & hold the water stream steady. The other players try to go under the stream of water without being sprayed. Player 1 brings the height of the water down by a few inches after each pass.

Rainbow Jumping

Set your hose on “MIST” and trap the sprayer in the corner of the trampoline zipper.  Since the mist setting disperses such small water droplets, the sunshine will produce a rainbow.  This also allows the kids to stay cool without getting too cold from the water.

  1. Great suggestions for trampoline fun and staying cool. Since we don’t own our trampoline anymore we head to our local outdoor pool or beach for summer time cooling off.

  2. Our family beats the heat in anything with water! We go to Waterslides, water parks, the lakes, ocean anything with water, we enjoy boating. IF we decide to do indoor things we make sure their is air conditioning it’s important for the kids to be nice and cool.

  3. We like to go to the outdoor pools! Popsicles, slurpees, and ice-cream! Water 💦 balloons 🎈!!! Camping ⛺️ Waterslides

  4. So far we played at the beach, lake and swimming there also swim at the pool. We are planning for water baloon fight. Water gun fight and bringout the ring pool. Also ice cream and popsicle lol.

  5. I absolutely loved all those trampoline games when I was a kid. My kids definitely love the water so we like to stay cool at waterparks and pools during the summer! 🌞

  6. We zap strapped a sprinkle hose to the top of the netting so we have continual misting while jumping on the trampoline! Excellent on a hot summer day.

  7. These are great ideas! I have tried them before except for the hose while they are jumping. I guess this weekend is the best opportunity to try it! 😊😊

  8. Loved having a trampoline growing up. We would put the hose on and a little dish soap. 😊 Only had 2 sprained toes from it!

  9. We go to water and splash parks and pools , wearing lightweight, light -coloured cloths , eat ice cream and cold drinks as much as we can 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦

  10. Those are great ideas to try on our new Springfree trampoline!! We’ll definitely give them a go to beat the heat this summer 😅

  11. Love the game ideas, my kids have always asked for a Trampoline so that we can turn on the sprinkler on hot days and play outside! We stay cool by keeping hydrated, having cool treats, and playing in the backyard.

  12. Those games are all actually petty great! We don’t have a yard for water games (😣) but I take the kids to the waterpark or the river near us all the time. Or we go to indoor play places like the one at McDonald’s because they have a/c.

  13. I would love to try these games if/ when we get a trampoline 😉

    Our family loves using a little kiddie pool, playing in the sprinkler or heading to our local river, pools and watersides each summer to cool down.

  14. Yesterday we were beating the heat by having a wading pool out and then the kids decided to soak the trampoline and do a ‘slip and slide’ style game on it.

  15. The water balloon bounce is actually one we have played at my nephews b day party with 12 nieces and nephews it’s very entertaining 🌞🎈🎈🎈🤸‍♀️🤹‍♂️

  16. we keep cool by eating frozen treats!! popsicles (homemade and store bought) freezies, frozen berries, ice cream etc…

  17. so far, we have spend 2 weeks camping at a couple of different lakes. At home we have water squirters & make our own fruity popsicles.

  18. Whew, made it to the comment section…
    My baby put his feet in the local fountain with some other kids. Did he ever enjoy the cool water.

  19. We try as much as possible to get to the water parks. If not, we blow up the pool at my mom’s house and hang out in that. Even though it’s not big enough. Haha

  20. We love visiting our favourite pools and enjoying chill desserts from nearby ice cream shops. Visits to Gymnastics classes enable us to swing like Tarzan and jump on the trampoline trying out new flips is a lot of Fun too!! Waterpark Visits are Fantastic as well!😀

  21. We stay cool by hanging in the shade, playing in the kiddie pool, hanging by the river or going to the beach! Anything to do with water! Going to the slides soooon! 💦⛱👙👨‍👩‍👦‍👦
