There are a number of factors that go into providing proper safety measures for children playing in a bounce house. Lots of parents who allow kids to play inside bounce houses falsely believe they can simply leave the kids alone once they’re inside. Most of the rules that go into safe bounce house usage are inadvertently ignored by children, and can enforced by adults. Not providing appropriate supervision can lead to dangerous yet avoidable injuries. The next time you decide to rent a bounce house, keep the following tips in mind:
- Make Sure No Sharp Objects Are Permitted Into the Bounce House
This is one of the more common rules that doesn’t need much explaining. Not making sure the bounce house is devoid of sharp objects could quickly lead to a painful accident for one of the kids. Not checking for sharp objects could also lead to damage to the bounce house. Simply checking for sharp objects before allowing children to play inside of a bounce house can go a long way in preventing accidents.
- Don’t Force The Bounce House to Hold More Than It’s Noted Capacity
Grouping kids entering the bounce house by size and weight is typically a good way of not extending the bounce house beyond its means. Allowing a smaller kid into the bounce house while bigger kids are playing could quickly lead to an avoidable, painful collision. The best way to avoid a situation like this is to segment the kids into groups based on size & weight, and to only allow one group at a time inside the bounce house at once. This will help avoid collisions and overcrowding inside the bounce house.
- Don’t Allow Shoes In the Bounce House
Allowing shoes to be worn inside a bounce house could open the door for lots of injuries and accidents to occur. Clearly, having your foot stepped on can be quite painful. The risk of that happening increases exponentially when some kids wear shoes and others don’t while inside of a bounce house. Additionally, the risk of twisting an ankle often increases when playing inside of a bounce house. The best way for children to avoid injuries while playing inside of a bounce house is to make sure no shoes are worn while inside.
- Prevent The Bounce House From Getting Wet
Keeping the bounce house dry is imperative to preventing injuries from happening inside of them. Dampness inside of the bounce house can quickly lead to one of the children slipping and hurting themselves or someone else. The best way to prevent the bounce house from getting wet is to check the weather to make sure conditions are suitable for the bounce house to be placed outside. When placed indoors it should be kept away from any area close to water.
