February FunZones!

JumpStart winter’s over now,
Don’t cry a tear or make a frown.
February’s coming soon,
With floating hearts and flowers bloom.

Cupid himself will make a trip,
To bring good cheer, love and friendship.
For all the Jumpeez in the land,
He’ll leave some gifts to take in hand.

A maze you say? What a special treat,
With scrumptious chocolates good to eat.
A ride with swans, how can it be so?
Float down Hearts Lane nice and slow.

When your kids make it through the Box of Chocolate Maze, they’ll reach the floating hearts trampoline!

Tell your kids to take a ride through Hearts Lane in a swan boat. They will be delighted by all of the sights along the way.

So many sweet things to see and do.
Cupid’s gathered his arrows and drawn his bow.
He just might strike a Jumpee or two,
Don’t worry, your kids can spread the cheer too!

Your kids can help spread the Valentine’s Day cheer, by throwing a heart at a fellow Jumpee as a sign of friendship.

What February activity are your kids looking forward to?


Opposite Day

January 25th is Opposite Day! Frankie and the team here at JumpStart have thought of some fun things for you and your kids to do to celebrate. Try some of them out and then tell us about it!

1. Say everything in opposites. For example, when your family wakes up in the morning say, “Goodnight” to each other.
2. Wear your clothes backwards or inside out. This is sure to make your family and friends laugh.
3. Eat your family’s meals backwards, beginning with dinner food for breakfast. Or, start your meal with dessert—we bet your kids will love that!
4. Play this game: Describe something to your kids and have them guess what the opposite of that word is. For example, “This is the season that is very cold and sometimes brings snow.” (Answer: summer)
5. Play this game: Say an action and your children have to do the opposite. For example, when you say, “Stand up,” your kids sit down.

What if everything was opposite on Opposite Day?

Can your kids think of any more things to do on Opposite Day? Let us know how your family will be celebrating this fun day!
