School Event Ideas from Backyard Bounce Events

From elementary school to high school it is important and fun to host a variety of events throughout the year. These little breaks give students time to refresh and unwind between periods of learning. Plus, when done correctly, this event can greatly enhance students’ appreciation for their school. This makes it a little easier for parents to get them up and moving in the mornings and can aid in earning some A’s. Adding exciting attractions from Backyard Bounce Events, such as bounce houses, carnival rides, and games, can transform these events into unforgettable experiences. Let’s check out some common school events and see how these events can be enhanced with a little help from your friends at BYB.

Field Day:

Field Day is a highlight of every elementary school. It is typically held in late spring when the weather is perfect for outdoor activities. On this day, students participate in various physical activities, fostering teamwork and school spirit. Obstacle course bounce houses like Venom or the 70-foot one will add a layer of excitement. Or imagine the joy on children’s faces as they compete in tug of war with a bungee twist. Competing against friends in a fun, healthy environment.

School Carnival/Festival:

School carnivals are usually held in the fall or spring and are a fantastic way to unite the school community. Picture the school grounds filled with laughter and music, with attractions like the Kiddie Ferris Wheel or the Majestic Carousel spinning in the background. Game stalls with the Duck Pond Game and Ring Toss can keep kids engaged for hours. Food concessions such as popcorn and cotton candy machines add to the festive atmosphere and provide delicious treats for everyone.

Fall Festival:

Fall festivals are held during the crisp autumn months and celebrate the season with themed activities. Renting a Pumpkin Bounce House or organizing a Hayride can make the event magical for young children. Incorporate a Corn Maze inflatable to challenge kids and add an educational twist by teaching them about agriculture and the harvest season.

End-of-Year Celebration:

As the school year winds down, an end-of-year celebration provides a perfect opportunity for students to unwind. These events, typically held in early summer, can feature water inflatables like the Double Lane Slip and Slide or the exhilarating Tropical Water Slide, offering a refreshing escape from the heat. Foam parties can also create a fun, bubbly environment where students can let loose and celebrate their achievements.

Reading or Achievement Rewards Day:

Schools often host reward days throughout the year to incentivize academic success. Setting up bounce houses like the Castle Combo or engaging students with game stations such as the Giant Jenga or Giant Guess Who can be fantastic rewards for their hard work. These activities provide entertainment and reinforce the importance of academic achievement in a fun and interactive way.

Back-to-School Bash:

The back-to-school bash, usually held in late summer or early fall, sets a positive tone for the new school year. The spinning Vortex and interactive games, such as the Hoops Basketball, can make this event memorable. Photo booths can provide fun keepsakes, allowing students to capture and share the excitement of reuniting with friends and starting a new school year.

Spring Fling:

Spring Flings, held as the weather warms up, are perfect for celebrating the season. Carnival rides like the Swing Ride and obstacle courses like the Wipeout Course can offer thrilling experiences. Lawn games such as cornhole or Giant Connect Four provide additional activities, catering to students of all interests and keeping everyone engaged throughout the event.

Winter Wonderland:

Transforming the school into a winter wonderland during the holiday season can be magical. Synthetic ice skating rinks and holiday-themed photo ops like the Snow Globe can create a festive atmosphere. Snow machines can add to the wintery feel, making the event a truly special occasion where students can enjoy the magic of winter right on their school grounds.

Homecoming /Spirit Week:

Homecoming and Spirit Week, typically held in the fall, are filled with activities that build school spirit. Renting carnival rides, dunk tanks, and inflatable games like the Gladiator Joust can energize students and boost participation. These attractions can make pep rallies and other school activities more engaging, fostering a sense of community and pride among students.

Grade-Level Field Trips:

On-campus grade-level field trips, often held throughout the school year, can be made memorable with exciting rentals. Imagine students scaling a rock climbing wall or bouncing on bungee trampolines, experiencing new challenges in a safe and controlled environment. These activities can provide a sense of adventure and accomplishment, making field trips more than just a break from routine but a day of growth and exploration.

Prom or Homecoming:

Pre-event festivities for prom or homecoming, held in spring and fall respectively, are always exciting. Adding attractions like the Mirror Me Photo Booth or inflatable games such as the Human Foosball can enhance these events, providing entertainment and great photo opportunities. These additions ensure that students not only have fun but also create lasting memories with their friends.

Senior Class Picnic:

A senior class picnic, often held towards the end of the school year, is a perfect way to celebrate the culmination of high school. Setting up a BBQ with grills and picnic tables can create a relaxing environment where seniors can enjoy their final days together and reminisce about their high school journey. Adding some friendly competition to the event with a Ninja Obstacle Course or Sumo Wrestling will add so much fun.

Post-Prom Party:

Hosting a safe and fun post-prom party can keep students entertained all night. Renting arcade games, a skating rink and karaoke can ensure a night full of excitement. These attractions can provide a variety of activities, ensuring that everyone finds something they enjoy and creating a memorable conclusion to prom night.

Spirit Week Activities:

Spirit Week, leading up to major school events can be enhanced with rentals. Inflatable competitions like the Bungee Run and mechanical rides like the Mechanical Bull can bring out school spirit and friendly rivalry. These activities can foster a sense of camaraderie among students, making Spirit Week a highlight of the school year.

Graduation Celebration:

A graduation celebration marks a significant milestone in a student’s life. Renting attractions like a Dance Floor and a DJ Booth can create a party atmosphere where graduates can celebrate their achievements. Photo booths and games can provide entertainment and memorable moments, making the celebration a fitting end to their high school journey.

School Fundraisers:

Fundraisers are crucial for supporting school programs, and exciting rentals can attract more participants. Carnival rides, games, and inflatables can boost fundraising efforts. Rides like the Trackless Train and games like the Hi-Striker can draw crowds and encourage participation, ensuring a successful event that supports important school initiatives.

Incorporating rentals from Backyard Bounce Events can elevate any school event, providing fun, safe, and memorable experiences for students of all ages. By choosing the right attractions, schools can create events that students will look forward to year after year, building a stronger, more vibrant school community.
