Adding Comfort to Our Trampoline

2 Materials

If you have an in ground trampoline you need to do this.

This is such an easy diy that I had my 8 year old do it.

What I did first was got a cutting board and cut one piece of a pool noodle, I didn’t measure it I just eyeballed it.

Now that I had 1 piece cut the size I wanted I gave my son the knife and told him to cut a bunch the exact same size as the one I already did.

making sure he kept it on the cutting board and not on the floor 😉

He was so careful, plus this game him something to do since kids seem to get bored so easily 😂

he actually loved helping out with this.

I had approximately 7 noodles but I didn’t have enough so I would recommend getting at least 10.

I found mine at the dollar store for $1 each

once you get all of your noodles cut down to size I had him cut a line all the way down one side.

This line is so that they could fit the noodles on the springs of the trampoline.

We chose to do all like green, but how fun would it be to do all different colors.

or even to just pick your kids favorite colors.

This definitely helps make things a little softer on those tiny toes.

I hope this is a fun easy project for you and your kids or grandchildren to do together.

    👍🏻wish I had this idea years ago. A gal ended up at ER when her hair caught the spring and jerked her head to the bar. Awful!

    (when my kids had friends, it was scary... never ask for $$ for them to jump. You become liable if there’s an accident/Insursnce.)

    Best training for a diver= trampoline!!

    Another safety hack for little ones is to cut a piece about a foot long and then one side length wise. Place it on top of doors that you don't want closed. Works well when kids are trying to bicker and are trying to keep each other out if rooms. No more accidental squished lil fingers
