Instead of jumping on the lunch / dinner or high tea bandwagon, why not do something really different and hire a jumping castle for a full on family fun day!! We have jumping castles for all occasions, and think a BBQ in the park – or at home, is the perfect way to celebrate your Mum and how fabulous she is!

Easter Party Package and Jumping Castle Hire

Get organized for your 2017 Easter party with our Jumping Castle hire & Easter Party Packages!

The best thing about March and April? Easter of course! Easter is the last big celebration holiday and perfect to throw that pre-Winter Easter party with Jumpin Around Easter party packages! And what better way than to incorporate fun for both the kids and adults with a Jumpin Around jumping castle hire and party package.

Most Easter parties run with the same traditions like the Easter egg chocolate treasure hunt (complete with finding some of last years that were missed) but we would like to give you some other ideas.

If you are hosting a party for a few families, or with the local community, then this is perfect! What you do is set up the “traditional” Easter treasure hunt as the standard part of your party, but this one has some hidden secrets like free face painting, perhaps a free snow cone or even 10 minutes on the jumping castle. The kids and even the grown-ups will love this. You can even hide the tickets in must-open-now packaging like plastic Easter Eggs!

For a smaller Easter party, this can work well too, just on a smaller scale. You can have an indoor treasure hunt with prizes and jumping castle sessions. Just make sure you have enough or, at the end d of the hunt let them all have a go!

At Jumpin Around we can cater for your Easter party by hiring:

* Several style and sizes of jumping castles,

Easter specials

* Generators if you do not have access to power outlets

If you are unsure of the suitability of your Easter party location for jumping castles, get in touch and we may be able to offer you a free site assessment (depending on your location) or guide your to the best jumping castle for your site.

Contact us to discuss your next Easter or Corporate party ideas.

We know that brekkie in bed is a bit of a V-day classic, but really, it never fails. Trust us. Give her (or him) their fav breakfast in bed, complete with a flower in a vase. Get the kids to bring it in for that extra special touch (perhaps some towels over the bedspread first in case of spillages!).

Step 3.

Coffee. That’s non-negotiable.

Step 4.

Meander back home, and feel free to fill in the next couple of hours as you wish.

Step 5.

Take her (or him) outside and see what Jumpin’ Around have been busy inflating … YES, it’s our awesome (and different!) Adults jumping castle – the Rock and Roll Gladiator jumping castle.  This huge 7.5 x 7.5m whopper is such a huge amount of fun for adults. It comes complete with jousting poles and gloves so you can really get into it. LED lights can be included also to make it a real party!

Valentines Day

Step 6.

Invite all your friends over for an impromptu party and dance, bounce and joust the afternoon away!

If you call us to hire this for  we will work out a special for you too 🙂

There are also many community events that we participate in such as the Deadly Choices Community Days held at various Brisbane locations throughout the year.  We are also an active member of the Bulimba Golf Club Sunday Sessions – held every Sunday of the year.  Nothing like the kids having a good bounce while mum and dad relax with a wine and some lovely tunes from the live band.  As well as the Golf Club, each Friday we are at one of the Love Your Local Markets evenings.   In truth, there isn’t many local events that Jumpin’ Around isn’t at!!
