What’s the longest you should let your kids play in the bounce house rental? As long as they like!
Sooner or later, children will wear themselves out with jumping and playing in the bounce house.
There’s usually no need to set time limits because your kids will come out when they are tired of playing, need something to eat or drink, or need to use the bathroom.
Exceptions to the Rule
There are a couple of instances in which you should limit the time children play in the bounce house rental.
For one, if there are very young children that want to play in the bounce house rental and you want to keep them separated from the older and bigger children so they won’t accidentally get injured or stepped on, you may decide to set aside time for younger kids and a different for the older children.
For example, you may determine that the first half of each hour should be for toddlers and children under a certain age and the second half of each hour can be for the rest of the kids.
Time to Go
Another time you may need to set time limits for children in the bounce house is when it’s time to leave the party.
If your kids are having a blast playing with their friends in the bounce house, they may be reluctant to leave even when its time to go home. But you can mitigate this by telling your children that they can play for set amount of time — say, ten minutes or a half hour — and then they have to get out so you can leave.
Most of the time, children will go along with this because it means they can continue to play in the bounce house rental for a while longer.
