Works for Me: Cheap Fun

works for me wednesday

A few months ago, Happy Hopperz bounce house opened up just a few blocks from our home.  After hearing many rave reviews, Grace and I tried it out.  It was a blast!  Even better, they have a “Toddler Time” where children under five can play without fear of a huge 12-yr-old jumping on them. 

We go most Wednesday mornings, and it only costs about $3.00 for each three-hour playtime.  And, they regularly send Buy-One-Get-One-Free coupons in the mail, so we took our friend Caleb along for free this morning.  The best part?  They are WORN OUT for naptime.  Oh yes.  They actually have a sign posted in their play area that says, “Helping make naptimes better for moms across America…” or something to that effect. 

Anyway, Grace and Caleb had a blast playing together, and I ended up calling my girlfriend and inviting her to bring her two little ones so we would have some company. 

Good times were had by all…..

That's too funny! We have two jumping places near our house, but they're not that cheap. :(

Yeah, I can't figure out why they're so much cheaper than other places. It's $3.99 each time at the door, but if you buy a 10-time toddler pass it's just $29.99. Thirty hours of jumping for $29.99 is well worth it for me.
