As the months start to fly by and we sneak into the end of the calendar year, for most parents our thoughts head to Christmas.
Now we may be a little biased, but here at Oz Trampolines we believe that one of the best Christmas gifts your children can receive is a trampoline.
This blog covers four reasons why a trampoline is the perfect gift for your children this Christmas.
Health and fitness is important to us all, but even more so for children who have a lot of extra energy to burn. All children love to run, jump and have fun and trampolines provide the perfect excuse for kids to do just that and in turn stay fit and healthy.
Trampolines in particular provide a great form of exercise and it has been found that only 15 minutes of jumping a day can improve overall posture, balance and coordination.
Trampoline jumping is low impact and so therefore doesn’t impact on a jumpers joints but it also increases flexibility and encourages bilateral motor skills. It also encourages gross motor skill development and is perfect for children who are reluctant to begin physical activities as it is both easy and fun. Jumping on a trampoline is perfect for keeping your little ones fit and healthy.
We all know just how important it is for children to get outside and away from the digital screen, and owning a trampoline is the perfect way to get outdoors.
With far more influence from the digital world including phones, television and ipads, getting outdoors allows your children to get some fresh air, enjoy some vitamin d and connect with nature. We find that kids are happiest when allowed to be outside enjoying outdoor play and the trampoline is the perfect place to do just that
Another reason why trampolines make the perfect Christmas gift is that they allow children to gain self-esteem and overall positive mental health.
Exercising is great for improving ones mental state of mind and reducing stress levels with the release of endorphins and other positive chemicals. Add the benefit of fun, games and imaginative play; trampolining can be perfect for creating positive mental health.
Jumping on a trampoline can also be great for building children’s confidence and self-esteem. The simple task of mastering a new trick or learning a new jump can improve children’s confidence and this confidence can help in everyday life.
The last reason, and potentially the most important reason that we believe that a trampoline is the perfect Christmas present is because they are fun!!
Trampolines encourage children to laugh, jump, bounce and play. They encourage creativity and imagination and help children to enjoy simply being kids.
