Does your child love to jump on the bed? Mine does! So much so, I have to sneak into the bedrooms when changing the sheets. Whether you love or loathe bed jumping, jumping is a skill your child will learn and practice on their developmental path.

To help your child hone their jumping skills, we’ve created Active Play Idea #16 ‘Jumping Jacks’. Join in when you can as jumping is great physical activity for adults too.

Looking to share jumping with your baby? Bouncy baby play to active songs and rhymes is sure to delight them. A popular one in my home is Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.

Move More Sit Less and jump for joy!
