Trampolining For Little People

As the days of good weather get fewer and further between, the opportunity for enjoying the outdoors is getting a much more precious commodity.  Whenever the rain abates, Freddy is eager to go and play in his garden and his favourite activity is trampolining.

We have had the trampoline for a couple of years now and Fred has been bouncing on it ever since he was first able to walk.  He is a bit of a natural with great balance and confidence.  His latest trick is the perfected seat drop.  He has copied his sisters and uses his arms to propel himself back onto his feet in one impressive move.  I tried to catch a seat drop on camera but he was too quick for me.  Instead I got lots of before or after shots, each one with an etched look of concentration on Fred's little face!

I love that he is getting fresh air and exercise and having loads of fun. The trampoline has been worth its cost ten times over for all the play value it has given my kids!

  1. We finally got our new one up yesterday - in time for the rain. It doesn't matter though they go on in all weathers. I refused to get a smaller one - even though our garden is smaller, (it's 14ft) and now takes up most of the garden - but what else do we need the garden for!

  2. I agree with you all the way, we have one at Coombemill and it is always one of the favourite play items at any time of the year. I even have a little go myself when no one is around!

  3. Having watched Freddy on the trampoline I am always amazed at his expertise - he is a complete natural and can perform all sorts of moves - watch out Kizzy, Freddy is catching up with you. xxx
