7 Popular Social Distancing Activities for Back Yard Parties

7 Popular Activities for Social Distancing Back Yard Parties

Are there fun activities which also abide by social distancing guidelines for a back yard party? Yes there are. Let’s see what activities Bubbling With Energy Entertainment have to not only keep you socially distanced, but also having some fun.

1 Interactive Sports Games

These are inflatables that can be set up in an average back yard and only require a few players so social distancing isn’t an issue. Our interactive sports games are activities like soccer and basketball shootouts, football passing, and the mini golf challenge. We even have an inflatable Battleship Game (see pic above). Yes, it’s just like the board game but gigantic.

2 Mechanicals for a Social Distancing Back Yard Party

You have all see the Mechanical Bull at your local pub. Well, apart from mechanical bulls, we have other mechanical activities such as a mechanical football, mechanical can, mechanical surfboard and mechanical bottle. They can all be managed so that social distancing guidelines are facilitated safely.

Add to the fun by calling it a Social Distancing Back Yard Party.

3 Fun Runs

The inflatable Bungee Fun Run and Fly Wall are two other great social distancing party activities. Instead of jumping off a bridge, the bungee fun run is a horizontal activity for two people at a time. The human fly wall is a modern version of the popular human fly wall. This re-vamped version has barriers for extra safety, a runway and a bouncy launch pad for takeoff. The Human Fly Wall hire also includes 6 Velcro suits of various sizes.

4 Jumping Castles in your Back Yard

There are small jumping castles available for hire which can fit into an average sized backyard. These include the Fairy Tale mini, Junior Jumper, Dolphin, and the ever popular Frozen jumping castles. For toddlers, the Dora the Explorer and Peppa Pig bouncy castles get squeals of delight. We also have the Cameron the Kiddiepillar inflatable tunnel for the smaller players. All of the jumping castles can be managed with social distancing in mind.

5 Foam Party

Another popular social distancing back yard party idea is a foam party. You can cover your whole back yard in foam or shoot the foam into one of our large or small inflatable containers. Then let your heads go and dance in a non toxic foam bath. Set rules that no one is allowed to dance too close to anyone else. The foam party is like dancing on the moon! Give prizes for the best decorated mask and best foam dancer!

6 Water Fun

In the hotter months you can have lots of social distancing fun with a water slide or a slip and slide. Lines of participants for both activities can be controlled in both so that they maintain social distancing. We have Water Fun activities to suit most average sized back yards.

7 Larger Events

If you have larger event try the Adrenalin Rush obstacle course. It’s a two lane course with lots of challenges such as popups, slides, ladders and tunnels. You may have seen our Adrenalin Rush obstacle course on Channel 9’s Today Show recently. Over 300,000 viewers watched Channel 9’ Today Show hosts Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon, compete in a Ninja Warrior type race against Morning Extra hosts David Campbell and Sylvia Jeffries. They competed the race on Bubbling With Energy’s spectacular “Adrenalin Rush Obstacle Course”. Karl and Allison won the event by a slim margin. It was a hilarious example of the type of social distance fun you can have at your next fete, festival, fun run or charity fund raiser.

See our other obstacle courses here. Most can be adapted to ensure social distancing is adhered to.

A Final Word – Social Distancing Back Yard Party

While the pandemic restrictions continue, we are all mindful of “social distancing”. Possibly, even after it passes, we will still be cautious and avoid shaking hands or hugging. So, do have a chat with our professional staff on 9829 8929. Ask about what fun activities will enhance your back yard birthday party or other event, and still cater to social distancing guidelines.



Are you looking for School Holiday Ideas?

Worst case scenario – you love your kids but the thought of self-quarantining with them for the school holidays can be daunting. If schools are shut down for a further period to help stem the growth of the pandemic, it will be even more daunting.

How can you keep the kids occupied during this period?

Bubbling With Energy Entertainment has been servicing Sydney and surrounds with dynamic inflatable play activities for over 27 years. Here are some fun ideas which might help you get through the holidays with your sanity intact. All of these home-based activities cater to 2 players or more:

1 Jumping Castles

Sometimes called bouncy castles, these inflatables come in different sizes to suit a small backyard or a local park. Click the Jumping Castles link for our small jumping castles with themes such as the Happy Clown or the Dolphin Mini jumping castles.

Toddlers will love an Inflatable Tunnel and the Junior Jumper.

2 Sports Themed Inflatables

Here’s another school holiday idea during the Pandemic. Can you imagine the hours of fun your kids will have on the inflatable Soccer Shootout? It will also increase their soccer skills. An inflatable Golf Challenge, a Basketball Shootout, and Footy Passing inflatables are also available. See this Sports link for more information.

3 Interactive Inflatable Games

Instead of a dart board, why not hire a Giant Inflatable Soccer Dart board? It will easily fit into an average back yard.

Other interactive games include Billiard Soccer and IPS Target Shooting with nerf balls, or Axe Throwing (it’s okay, the axes are soft).

Have you ever played the “Battleships” board game? For a bit of fun, try the inflatable Battleships Game … same rules only it’s huge! There is also the Connect a Shot game which is our version of Connect 4!

4 School Holiday Ideas on Hot Days?

Summer seems to be infiltrating into other seasons. If the school holidays are hot, another fun idea is to try an inflatable Water Slide or our new Inflatable Foam Pit.

All you need for these holiday fun activities is a backyard and access to an electric power point. Our professional set up staff will ensure the inflatables are securely fastened and provide a video about safety when using inflatables with children.

All of these activities are fun and active and will develop physical and mental team skills. Book Now.

If you are a holiday play centre, youth club, church youth group, child care centre, council event organiser, recreation park, or an aquatic centre, see this Blog for larger school holiday ideas.
