Yup, its a great idea to try with our kids. I would love to try this as well. I'm not sure what kind of objections I have to face with my kids. But well, I will give it a try. And I found them a useful trampoline already which I got it from here..

Really useful tips, Kelli. I'm definitely gonna try some of these with my toddler apart from these general fun games mentioned here:

He always looks at his older siblings with awe as they jump on their mini trampoline, so these tips would come in handy in keeping him busy.

Thanks for the tips, Kelli! I've gotta try them with my 2-year old! He's the only small one in the family and when his brothers go trampolining, he'd always want to try it to. Of course, it's safe for my older kids. The tips I got from helped me get the best one for my backyard. But still, he's too young to be jumping with the others so I always try to keep him busy with games and this article is perfect for me! Good job!
