Here is Your Backyard Party Checklist to Compliment Your Bounce House Rental
A backyard bounce house rental is an excellent idea for any party where children ages 6 to 12
will be in attendance. There are some things that you’ll need to do to ensure a successful party.
You’ll need to ensure you have a clear and open space sufficient for the size of the bounce
house. You’ll also require an open and easily accessible path to where the inflatable will be set
up when it’s delivered. The bounce house must be established away from any utility lines,
fences, buildings or other potential hazards.
The location where the inflatable will be set up must be smooth and free of rocks, sticks,
sprinkler heads and other items that could damage it. You’ll also need a nearby source of
electricity to power the generator that will keep the bounce house inflated. The optimal
distance from a power source is 25 ft. or less.
A responsible adult to monitor the bounce house is critical. No child under the age of 6 should
be allowed in a bounce house. The monitor will need to have children remove their shoes,
along with any objects that could possibly puncture the inflatable.
Food is never allowed in a bounce house. The monitoring adult will also be responsible for not
letting too many children in the bounce house at one time and ensuring that those in the
bounce house are of a similar size and weight.
Children burn a lot of energy in a bounce house. They’ll need food, along with beverages to
remain sufficiently hydrated. There are machines that can be rented to warm hotdogs and
buns, and to provide snow cones, popcorn and cotton candy. While soda is popular with
youngsters, water is better for hydration in the South Florida climate. Consider fruit flavored
water for a refreshing, tasty and healthy beverage.
