Kids & Bounce Houses

If you are wondering what the right bounce house for your toddler or young child is, just give us a call. 

Bounce houses are a really fun and safe way to entertain young kids. They are by nature very soft and encourage kids to tumble in a safe space. 

Of course some bounce houses can be very tall or have no side barriers and that is why we at KidPackz make sure to understand our clients needs and the best practices for the safety of the children.

Outdoor Games

Naturally in the summer time we love to turn on the hose and pull out the water slides, but sometimes you might find your self wondering what else yiou can do out doors...

Here is our favourite games to play out doors:

Outdoor Games


This game is a variation of tag and hide & seek. One person or a team of people are designated as "it" and a can is placed in the middle of the playing area. The other people run off and hide while the "it" covers his or her eyes and counts to a certain number. "It" then tries to find everyone. If a person is tagged by "it", they go into a holding pen for captured players. If one of the un-captured players manages to kick the can, the captured players are released. The game is over once all the non-"it" players are in the holding pen. Number of Players: Ideally at least three. Equipment: A metal can.

Outdoor Games


This game is most fun when played with a large group. Split the group into two teams, each team having a flag or other marker at the team's base. The object of the game is to run into the other team's territory, capture their flag and make it safely back to your own territory. You can tag "enemy" players in your territory, sending them to your jail. They can be sprung from jail by a member of their own team running into your territory, tagging them and running back, with one freed person allowed per jail break. It is sometimes played that all the people in jail could hold hands and make a chain back toward their own territory, making it easier for members of their team to tag them. We also played a similar game called Steal the Sticks. It had almost the same rules, but several sticks were used instead of one flag. Number of Players: A large group. Equipment: Two flags or other markers.

A favorite game in Tudor and Victorian England, this game is yet another variation on tag. The person who is "it" wears a blindfold and tries to tag the other players.
