Health and Social Benefits of Inflatable Air Castles and Obstacle Courses
by Debra Henderson, MS, 2013
Inflatable bouncers, jump houses, and obstacle courses, are often thought of as recreational devices for children’s parties, school field days, church carnivals and company parties, though they provide excellent opportunities for healthy activity too. The inflatable play structures kids love provide exercise for a healthy heart, increase lung capacity, and muscle building through activities such as sustained cardio-vascular fitness, endurance, enhancement of proprioception, development of physical education skills and psychomotor skills of climbing up, over, under, around and through objects in a safe environment as well as negotiating correct sliding positions as the body moves through space. There is also a strong social skills component as children cooperate in a designated jump space or traverse through an obstacle course together. So let them jump, bounce, climb through an obstacle course and slide down an inflatable slide knowing it isn’t just fun and games! They are having fun, staying healthy and learning new skills!
