- Children’s self-esteem can be positively affected as they learn how to bounce independently.
- Gross motor skills are enhanced while jumping on the trampoline. Children who are blind or visually impaired need opportunities to build gross motor skills.
- Jumping on the trampoline gives a child practice in body movement and helps hone coordination skills.
- Play a game of, “Start-Stop” (similar to musical chairs). When the music starts a child begins to jump. When the music stops, the child must stop jumping. This helps develop auditory processing skills and can also help gradually increase stamina and duration by playing the music longer between stops.
- Give the child verbal directions for how to jump – high, fast, slow.
- Ask the child to practice counting or recite the alphabet while jumping.
- For children who are nervous, introduce the concept of jumping slowly, let them stand on the trampoline first and when they are ready to bounce, have him hold onto the support poles for added assurance.
- For children who have with visual impairments, outline the jump area numbers with brightly colored tape to heighten the contrast and allow them to see the numbers more clearly.
- Have the child sit or lie on the trampoline and bounce the trampoline for them with your hands.
- Children can build fine motor skills while operating the zipper on the trampoline door.
- Bouncing on a trampoline develops skill and proficiency in sensing and maintaining proper balance and balance reaction.
- Bouncing on a trampoline can help improve coordination and physical development.
- The caregiver may teach the child different ways to jump- fast, slow, high, etc.
- Make an obstacle course and have the trampoline be part of the course.
- Sing the song, “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.” Each time a monkey falls off the bed, have the child stop jumping and fall down.
- Have the child sit or lie on the trampoline and bounce the trampoline for him with your hands.
- If a child cannot use the trampoline but wants to be involved, they can be the leader that tells people when to jump and for how many jumps. Child may also use the color legend to call out the color sequences for the child jumping.
- If child is nervous or hesitant, have him practice jumping first on the ground either independently or with assistance.
- Jumping on the trampoline may help improve attention span on tasks presented after.
