It might be the last few weeks of summer and heading into fall but are you still looking for ways to get your kids outdoors after school? Maybe you are like us and homeschool. You might be looking for ideas to incorporate physical education into your homeschooling routine. I have had the pleasure of working with Springfree Trampoline and I would love to share with you today why I think using Springfree in afterschool activities and Homeschool PE sessions is the way to go.
Springfree Trampoline Gives Peace of Mind
Springfree Trampoline is the world’s safest, highest quality and longest lasting trampoline. I personally enjoy the peace of mind I have when my kids jump knowing Springfree offers some top safety features that include:
• No springs – Springfree uses flexible composite rods instead of metal springs, eliminating pinch points that could trap feet and toes.
• Flexible safety enclosure – Cushions falls and places jumpers back on the jumping surface.
• SoftEdge™ Mat – Springfree has created a shock absorbent SoftEdge™ mat that eliminates any hard edges at the jumping surface and will absorb 30 times more impact than traditional padding.
• Hidden Frame – Springfree Trampoline has a frame located well beneath the jumping surface where jumpers can’t hit it.
Plus, Springfree Trampolines are supported by a full 10-year warranty. Literally, this trampoline is going to last for many years of fun and active play.
Get Kids Outdoors and Active
As I mentioned before, we homeschool our kids. However, I think as all school-aged parents, we can all struggle in getting our kids outdoors and active. After a long day of school work and study, I think the tendency is for kids to turn on the video games or lounge in front of the television. While this isn’t always a bad thing, I personally think it is important that kids are active for even just 30-minutes after school.
However, finding ideas for Homeschool PE or after-school activities that the whole family can enjoy is tough. Hide and go seek and catch can only go so far sometimes.
My kids love Springfree and there is never any fight to get them outdoors to jump and play. Our Springfree is equipped with the FlexrHoop™ which is a soft and flexible basketball hoop for kids. This brings so much more play to our kids jumping sessions.
They can dunk their foam basketball or aim to shoot for the hoop. A great addition to any Springfree Trampoline that also helps kids from getting bored and can be an idea for Homeschool PE. But Springfree doesn’t stop there in the additional added fun.
Technology can be engaging outdoors too with the tgoma. A digitally-interactive trampoline game system that engages the entire family in safe backyard fun. Take the tablets outside and have fun with education and being active!
Our specific Springfree is the Large Oval (8 x 13 ft.). This has been perfect for our 4-year-old and 7-year-old. There is also plenty of growth room for them to enjoy this Springfree Trampoline through the ages.
Using Springfree for Homeschool PE Sessions
We have been setting a schedule every week for certain times of day that we engage in studies. Who says it all has to be book work, though? I highly encourage PE to be integrated into any homeschool routine.
Every weekday, I encourage our kids to get outdoors for 30-minutes on our Springfree Trampoline after utilizing our homeschool study space. This even helps me to get out and watch our kids play for my own need for activity and fresh air. Being a homeschooling mom, I can easily get caught in an indoor routine.
Plus, our kids love to take their books outdoors and study on the Springfree Trampoline. Who doesn’t love a different view from time to time?
If you’re concerned about too much sun, Springfree also offers a Sunshade that filters 99 percent of UVA and UVB rays to protect during play. They really do think of just about everything.
Springfree Trampolines don’t have to stop at just a fun way to get outdoors and staying active. I have seen others use them as space to layout for family movie nights, under the stars sleepovers, and so much more. Springfree isn’t just taking our family outdoors for fun, it is giving us another way to connect as a family. We leave everything inside with work, school, life and we get time together. I think for me, this is the most important thing.
I want to thank Springfree again for working with us and I highly recommend taking a look into purchasing your own Springfree Trampoline. They even have an offered team to come out and set up each trampoline for you too. Our installation was around 30-minutes and our kids were able to play. For this mom who probably would have spent a week trying to get it together, I am thankful for this option. My kids were already asking me every 5-minutes when the trampoline would be ready, I couldn’t imagine if I was doing this on my own. Sanity!
If you are considering a new trampoline to keep your family active, look into Springfree. I don’t think you will regret it.
