How do you sleepover on a trampoline?

You can sleep on a trampoline using blankets and blowup mattresses. But, it takes some preparation and fun trampoline sleepover ideas before camping on trampoline.

Before we get to our DIY trampoline sleepover ideas, let’s start with some basics:

What is a trampoline sleepover?

A trampoline sleepover (or trampoline tent sleepover) is exactly what it sounds like—it’s a trampoline slumber party where kids sleep on a decorated trampoline instead of inside and have fun sleepover activities outdoors under the stars.

(It’s fun for backyard camping birthday party ideas, too!)

Is it safe to sleep on a trampoline?

Sleeping on a trampoline can be tricky! If you don’t have a trampoline safety enclosure, consider one for your trampoline sleepover. You don’t want anyone falling off of the trampoline in the middle of the night! (Plus, it’s easier to add curtains, lights, and other decorations for your sleepover if you have a trampoline net.)

Now let’s talk about some trampoline tent ideas…

Trampoline Tent for Backyard Camping

Camping on a trampoline is super fun, but you have to be prepared! If you’re going to host a trampoline sleepover, one of the best things you can do is get a trampoline tent.

A trampoline tent is an actual tent that fits over your trampoline or inside your trampoline. It provides cover and comfort for backyard camping and outdoor slumber parties.

If you don’t want a full tent, you can also get trampoline covers for sleepovers for the top and not the sides.

How To Put Blankets Over A Trampoline

Wondering how to decorate a trampoline for a sleepover? If you don’t want to get a trampoline tent, here’s one of those fun, old school trampoline ideas: make a trampoline fort with blankets or sleeping bags or even an inexpensive canopy curtain and make your own canopies for trampolines.

(It’s a cheap and easy way to make a DIY trampoline canopy / DIY trampoline tent and works for how to make a trampoline fort, too!)

To create a trampoline fort for your sleepover, hang curtains, sheets, or blankets from the top bars along each side to provide privacy. You can leave the top open or cover it with long blankets or curtains.

Don’t forget to add cool lights strung across the top, which works under a blanket top or with an open top!

Trampoline Sleepover Checklist and Supplies

How do you camp on a trampoline:

  1. Before the party, clean off the trampoline of debris, leaves, limbs to make sleeping on trampoline more comfortable.
  2. Spray down the trampoline to get rid of any dirt. (Be sure to do this well in advance of the party so it has time to dry before you decorate!)
  3. Make sure your trampoline has a net enclosure for the sides so no one falls off during the night.
  4. If you don’t have a trampoline tent, use curtains, a mosquito net canopy, or blankets for the sides of the trampoline enclosure. You can use clothespins or paper binder clips to clip the blankets to the top of the enclosure net or the bars.
  5. DIY trampoline lights: String Christmas lights / twinkle lights across the width the top, either in the tent or across the top of the enclosure net. (This will really elevate your aesthetic trampoline sleepover!)
  6. Your trampoline sleep over supplies should include a lot of blankets! Place blankets on top of the trampoline (bouncy part). Continue layering with sheets, blankets, duvets, and sleeping bags to make a fluffy, comfortable hangout area. This will make sleeping on the trampoline super comfortable. You can also use a blowup mattress for a trampoline sleeping bed.
  7. Provide serving trays with snacks and drinks. Be sure to leave a few empty serving trays to be used to sit drinks, food, or other things on.
  8. Be sure to have outdoor items like bug spray, flashlights, and cozy pajamas and socks. Remember, even in the summer it can get chilly way up in the night! You can even make party favor bags with small flashlights (or try these!), insect repellent, comfy socks, and sleepover snacks.
