April 22nd is not only Earth Day, but Jelly Bean Day as well. Why not combine these two exciting celebrations into one spectacular, fun play date for your little ones.
Start your day outdoors enjoying the wonders of nature. A scavenger hunt in the neighborhood is a great way to combine natural exercise with a fun event that celebrates our earth. Stop at your local park for fun games after the children have found all their environmental treasures. They will love the opportunity to run in the open spaces, climb on the play structures, slide down slides, and swing on the swings.
When you’re ready to return to the house with your group, Jellybean and Earth Day crafts will keep them happily occupied. Candy jewelry is colorful, edible, and fun to make. With string, a sewing needle that you supervise using and colorful candied beans, you and your crowd can create tasty necklaces, bracelets, and even rings.
Using ziplock bags and pipe cleaners, make butterflies by filling the bag with the delicious candy, then dividing the bag in half with the colorful pipe cleaner to create wings. Make the bug’s body, face, and antennae with the fuzzy craft sticks.
Set up a STEM table using toothpicks and the chewy sweets. Let the children’s imaginations run wild as they create their masterpieces.
There are also many great craft projects the kids can do with recycled materials as well. Plastic cookie or pastry containers make great suncatchers, used milk jugs can be designed into wonderful bird feeders, while old egg cartons and plastics pop bottles are perfect plant holders. Unused kitchen forks and spoons make fabulous wind chimes. The kiddies will enjoy learning the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling different materials while creating attractive accessories for the home.
Once the little ones get hungry, serve them a healthy, natural meal of finger and pinwheel sandwiches, yam fries, vegetable sticks in reusable cups and Jelly bean shaped fruited platters. Add mouth-watering fruit smoothies to fill their hungry stomachs.
When the kids are ready to play again, set up different games and play structures in your yard that will not only entertain your crowd but are not harmful to the planet. At Big Bounce Fun House Rentals, we have over 30 carnival and picnic games that are not only environmentally friendly but also thrilling to play.

Our inflatable units are fan favorites but also easy on nature. The lightweight structures do not harm the surface underneath and require little energy to keep inflated. Your child and his or her friends will have a blast bouncing, climbing, jumping, dodging, ducking, squeezing, tossing, and sliding through one of our vibrant units.
