Halloween is a festive favorite for many adults and children alike. What is not to love? You get costumes, pumpkins, and all things spooky, and let’s not forget candy, candy, and more candy! That is a lot of fun to fit into one fun evening. While some may rise to the occasion, not everyone has the time or the mind to make Halloween night an experience to remember. Fear not! We’ve got your back! We’ve found 5 ways to make this Halloween happier and healthier with the help of inflatables.
Make Your Halloween Planning Easier
While many find Halloween to be a great excuse to get creative with their costumes and decorations, it is also a lot of work! This year Halloween falls on a Saturday, which provides a few extra hours to make some magic happen. This is a luxury only afforded to us every few years. We won’t have another until 2020! Can you imagine the stress that parents endure when Halloween falls on a school or work night? I bet you can, because it happened last year. When you have a bounce house at your disposal, you may be able to get away with skipping an evening of door-to-door candy collection. Set up the inflatable, dole out treat bags to your little ones, and call it a night.
Sure, you may still find yourself handing out candy for other kids but at least it’s from the comfort of your own home. You might even get a few trick-or-treaters who forget all about candy when they spot the bounce house, asking for a minute or so to bounce around instead. Having your own inflatable means hours of fun without leaving your yard.
A Great Addition to a Halloween Party
Even if you’re already planning to skip Trick-or-Treating, perhaps by planning to host a party at home, a bounce house can help take a Halloween party to the next level. A lot of parents have realized that inflatables are easy entertainment for parties. With Halloween being all about imagination and make-believe, your bounce house becomes an extension of the fun. At Blast Zone, you can find several inflatables with themes that can go hand in hand with several classic costumes, like pirates, princesses or even wild animal costumes paired with the Rainforest Rapids Combo.
Burn off those Candy Calories
Some might argue that while it’s certainly fun to eat your weight in candy, it may not always be the best choice, all things considered. Candy calories count, and they can definitely add up. This is especially true if Halloween night spreads into something more like Halloween week, like it does for so many families. Between Harvest Festivals at your local community center and classroom Halloween parties, the sweet treats really start to stack. Now you’ve got belly aches and spoiled appetites to contend with. With a bouncer, kids have a fun way to burn off some of the extra calories and sugar.
Kids Stay Safe
Halloween traditions vary by the community, but the most widely known is Trick-or-Treating. Each year, kids all over head out after dark to collect candy from their neighbors. It is a fun tradition, but with each passing year neighborhoods everywhere are experiencing dwindling numbers of trick-or-treaters. This is because many communities are resorting to hosting private carnivals and parking lot trunk-or-treat parties in an attempt to keep kids safe. These events can be made more fun with good planning and great entertainment. There is something to be said about being the family that brought the bounce house.
Adults Stay Sane
Halloween is fun for adults as much as it is for kids, but the reality is that a lot of the traditions were started for kids to have a good time. For a lot of parents, holidays and festivities are all about making sure that their kids have plenty of fun and fond memories to look back on. While creating these memories can be a lot of work, their smiles make the work worth it.
The grown-ups are responsible to make sure that it all goes off without a hitch. With a bounce house at your disposal, it takes away a lot of the guess work in making the evening filled with fun. While kids bounce around and work up a sweat, you don’t have to worry about how to keep kids warm in costume. Inflatables can also give you a few moments to relax and enjoy the sound of their laughter. An inflatable might make for a happier Halloween but best of all, the evening of Halloween is just the beginning. After the capes are hung and the make-up is washed away your bounce house will remain, ready to entertain.
