#1 – Capture the Flag
The name may seem familiar to your ears, it’s the evergreen field game but can gel well with a bounce house too. Just ask the group to split in any number of even teams as per the number of invitees, allow each group a color, now use some sticky notes, ribbons, streamers, color-coded cutouts. Color-coordination is the key and set them on each edge of the bounce house. Kids should guard their corresponding color. Team with the most flags will be declared winner.

#2 – The Dancing Floor
This is a fun game, music is something we all have in our parties then why not combine the two-fun activities together. Ask the kids to come atop the bounce house and just turn on the music, ask them to dance but then suddenly stop the tune, with the pause in music the kids are will be required to freeze as well, they have to stay still, the ones falling to do has to leave, the floor would be shaking after the kids stop dancing this may cause the kids to fall while holding still when the music stops, the soft texture of the bounce house will not hurt the kids, last one standing wins the game.
#3 – The Command Challenges
One of the easiest game to conduct yet the fun is double, may I assure you. You will also find the game amusing. Ask the kids to jump on the inflatable bounce house for per say 40 seconds, to add a twist to the tale, command a certain way to jump to the kids and they have to jump the way you’d instructed them. You can add animal imitation like jump like a rabbit. Anyone falls before the given time is out of the game. It is a fun way to have the kids engaged.
#4 – Crab Kick
This adorable game is a fun way to uplift the mood of your kid’s birthday party, get some balloons and toss them in the bounce house, assign the balloons to each participant. Have the kids lean back and fold their arms all the way to their back, the face should be on the ground. The rules are simple, the kid’s buttock shouldn’t touch the ground, if it does the kid is out. See if any kid is able to bounce their balloon to the ceiling, if anyone does, then it’s an extra point or say some extra treat to the kid.
#5 – The Race
You can play the game in two ways, choose the one you prefer the most, or just mix it up. First being the pair bounce, take 4 kids and pair them in 2, creating 2 teams and settle them to each corner of the inflatable bounce house now instruct them to jump, the pair should switch their places with their respective partner before the other team does. Another way being, have the kids line up in one aligned seam against one corner of the bounce house, then shout “go” as soon as the command goes, the kids should drop to the bounce house and start doing the somersault to the other side of the bounce house, upon reaching the kids should stand and touch the wall of the bounce house and then drop down again doing the somersault to reach the initial position, the first one to make it back to spot wins.
