Trampoline Birthday Games for 7-Year-Olds
For larger parties or parties that make the birthday child feel super-special, we also offer private park rentals. That means you’ll get the whole park to yourself for your party. One of the biggest advantages of having a private party at Urban Air is that you don’t have to share the attractions with anyone outside of your party. This opens up new opportunities for additional fun and games you can play in the park.
Please remember that these games are not appropriate when other families are enjoying the park. Please be sure to review all the park’s safety rules with your party guests to ensure a fun and safe party for everyone.
Horse is one trampoline game you won’t want to miss. This fun game is awesome for party guests and party hosters alike, where everyone will enjoy playing along. It all starts with the first child who starts. This person will do a trick on the trampoline, and the others who are playing the game must also do the trick. If one child does not succeed at copying the trick, then they get an “H.”
You continue going around the circle until you’ve completed everyone’s turn. Then, the next child gets a chance to do their own trick. The same rules and gameplay apply. If on the second round one person is not able to complete the trick, they get an “O.”
This continues around in a circle. If someone spells out the word H-O-R-S-E, then they are out of the game. The last person standing that has not completed the word H-O-R-S-E wins the game!
Monkey in the Middle
Monkey in the Middle is another classic, fun birthday party game that the birthday child is sure to enjoy on a trampoline. It’s easy to play, and all you need is a ball and a group of kids. You can have as little as 3 children to play this simple party game.
The goal of the game is simple, keep the ball away from the person in the middle. You start by choosing someone to play the “monkey” who will be the one trying to get the ball, while all the other kids form a circle. The ball must be thrown through the center of the circle to another person in the circle. Remember, the goal is to keep the ball away from the person in the center, so it’s important to aim high or low to ensure your best shot!
The game is over when the child in the middle gets the ball away from someone, and the person who threw it has to be the next “monkey” in the middle. This great game will keep kids entertained while jumping on trampolines makes it a bit more difficult and strategic, but also allows kids to have fun and keep it simple!
Keep the Ball Up
Keep the Ball Up on a trampoline is one of our favorite kid’s birthday party ideas. It all starts with a ball, a group of people, and each person within a dedicated area. The idea of this party game is simple, keep the ball up and don’t let it touch the floor. The first person will pass it to another, and the next person to another, and so on and so forth. The person who sent a pass that was out of the box that allows the ball to touch the ground will be eliminated until the last person is left standing. This is one of the best party games because it is great for younger children and older children alike.
Follow the Leader
Older kids and other kids of all ages can play Follow the Leader on a trampoline, which will be sure to be hit! Follow the Leader is an easy game to learn and play, and starts with one person who will act as the leader. The rest of the kids then line up behind the leader. The leader then does a movement that the rest of the kids have to follow. The game continues until someone is not able to copy a movement that the leader has performed.
Trampoline Hot Potato
Of all the party games for kids, trampoline hot potato might be one of the most fun birthday party games. Hot potato is a classic party game, but it’s made even more fun when there’s a trampoline involved.
Here’s how to play: children start by sitting in a circle on the trampoline. Then, using a ball or similar object, each child will pass the ball around while music plays. If someone drops the ball, then they are out of the game. When the music stops, the person who is holding the “potato,” or the ball is out. The last person left who has not gone out is the winner of the game. To make this even more fun and more difficult on a trampoline, the kids can be standing or jumping during gameplay.
Freeze dance is perfect for a kid’s party and fits almost any age group! For this game, all you’ll need is some fun music and yourselves. Someone will play the music, and everyone can start dancing and jumping. When the music stops, kids should freeze exactly where they are until the music starts playing again. If anyone stumbles, they are out of the game. Keep playing music until there is only one child left standing.
