- Bounce Houses — Bounce Houses can be a lot of fun — especially at parties and other celebrations. But you always want to plan ahead and make sure you’re following the right safety procedures for bounce houses. Those can include:
- Only children age 6 and older should use bounce houses. Younger children may not have the balance, coordination or strength to safely enjoy one.
- An adult must always be present to supervise. At a park or other similar setting, it is best to have a trained supervisor to watch over the bounce house to ensure no one gets in harm’s way.
- Before entering, have the kids remove their shoes and glasses.
- Set rules for safe play. Tell children to not roughhouse too much, tumble, wrestle or do flips. Have children keep away from exit/entrance when jumping so they don’t fall out of the bouncer.
- If the bouncer begins to lose air, or if it’s too windy, have all children carefully exit the bouncer.
- Cornhole — Cornhole is one of America’s most popular lawn games, it’s also called bags, bag toss, corn toss, bean toss, bean bag and probably a few other names. It can be played with two or four players, either one-on-one or two teams split into two. Players take turns trying to toss bean bags into the hole from a distance (for three points) or thrown onto the board from a distance (for one point). Cornhole can be an awesome and fun game if you know what you’re doing. Here a few pointers to remember while playing. But for the most part, just have fun!
- Think Small: When you focus on getting every bag through the hole, you’re more likely to overthink the toss. Instead, aim for the front of the board, the bean bag is more likely to slide into the hole that way.
- Spins Equal Wins: Sometimes it helps to use different techniques when throwing your bean bag, so instead of just throwing the bag, try adding a little spin to the bean bag, thrown in a spiral instead of just straight.
- Keep Your Cool: Do your best to stay relaxed and have fun. When you get tense, your game tends to suffer.
- S’mores — S’mores are and always will be a classic yummy outdoors dessert. S’mores are made with chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers. After roasting your marshmallow over a fire (of however you choose) place it in between to graham crackers and place a piece of chocolate in between the graham cracker and marshmallow to have the perfect dessert flavor. Usually you just use a piece of a milk chocolate candy bar but it’s okay to switch it up. Try your very own favorite candy bar as a chocolate substitute.
We have a great variety of activities for everyone to enjoy along with hot chocolate and snacks! Tickets range from five to ten dollars. Five dollars for children and ten dollars for adults. Come see North Carolina’s hidden halloween gem!
