1. Count and Bounce
Jumping and Counting on the mini trampoline is a wonderful play for kids who are just learning to count numbers. With each jumping, children have to count numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5…) as much as they can.
You can add some rules there to make it more interesting like- when kids say any wrong number or fail to count further another player will get the turn to jump. The participant who can count more numbers will be the winner.
It is an Exer-Learning process that includes children’s physical exercise and learning simultaneously. This fun indoor trampoline game will encourage kids to learn to count higher numbers to jump for a longer time.

2. Alphabet Jumping
Like Count and Bounce, you can incorporate singing the alphabet while children jump on the trampoline. Kids can jump until they utter the letters correctly. You can add more challenges here by instructing them to say two or three words for each letter (Like A for Apple, Axe; B for Ball, Brush…).
3. Catch the Ball
When your child is jumping on the small indoor trampoline, throw a soft foam ball at him/her. He/she should throw it back to you very fast. If the kid fails to catch and throw the ball he/she will be disqualified and another participant will get the chance to play.
It will improve the hand and eye coordination of your children. This mini trampoline ball game will also be beneficial for kids with special needs.

Red Light and Green Light jumping is another fantastic fun mini trampoline game for kids. While kids jump on the trampoline another player or instructor standing outside will instruct the player on the trampoline to jump or bounce.
When the green light is on the jumper has to bounce and for red light signals the bouncer must stop. If the jumper fails to follow the instruction, he/she will be gone. This game is also named Stop and Jump.
5. Jump on One Leg

6. Front and Back Jumping
To add challenges in the mini trampoline for kids, you can instruct them to do Front and Back Jumping. They have to jump on the front and then jump back. A balance bar may be helpful here.
7. Up Down Jumping
It is almost like natural jumping, but it needs to incorporate the knees or bottom. Kids have to stand and jump on their knees or bottom. You can create a pattern for that like up, down, up, down, or up, up, down, down, etc.

8. Basketball Play
If you attach a basketball hoop to the trampoline net on a mini trampoline, kids can play basketball games there. In this case, a basketball hoop and a ball will do the job done. Give challenges to kids to put the ball on the basketball goal for a certain number within a limited time.
9. Turn on Music and Dance During Jumping
While children jump on the indoor trampoline, turn on music and allow them to dance on the trampoline. Girls will enjoy this lavish game very much.
