Trampoline.




..when I first came to US ,I was surprised by this eight feet Giant like play area and kids having fun ,it was not common in India those days ..like ten years back.Specially in the backyards of most of the houses...you will find a Trampoline  in US...its best activity for kids to jump play and get most of their energy out...I tried couple of times too...its pure fun.
In my Gym we have a small trampoline as part of workout which I use more often.
With summers and vacation ..whenever I am in my backyard I see girls jumping and lot of noise ,both of  my boys and a boy from neighbourhood love watching them while playing basket ball ...
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that trampolines should only be used under the supervision....I always make sure somebody is in the back yard while kids are playing even on an outdoor gathering one adult supervises the kids and keeps an eye on little ones.
last week my hubby took some pictures ...with kids on trampoline (he is a professional photographer )...
IRISONE is his logo..

For some reason, it is not very common in this area. Our yard is very small in any case. But it seems like so much fun.

Looks like so much fun. Wish we had the space to install one at our homes too.

Harman,

It seems quite a fun. I will try to convince our society RWA to install one. Has the young one started enjoying it now?

Take care

Even though it's a best exercise, since it involves almost every muscle in your body, you'd be surprised how many accidents happen on these things... My boyfriend is a doctor and he sees a lot of kids getting hurt...

Rule of the thumb in Canada is to use net on any trampoline with more than 2 feet radius since you won't bounce and jump out of the trampoline and land on the ground or worse on the edge of the trampoline as it can seriously hurt the kid...

Nice pictures... your younger son is soo adorable!!

Kids from different places have different ideas of fun.In India,children have many unique games of fun,without gadgetories.Probably safer too.

Trampoline is a great exercise tool. I use it in my fitness centre and have even put few videos of it on youtube.
Nice pictures.
