Having a space indoors where your kids can play safely is one of the best decisions you can make as a parent, and nothing does the job quite like some tumbling mats that fold up and get tucked away when the kids aren’t using them. Tumbling mats are the perfect surface for toddlers’ playtime, young kids’ wrestling and roughhousing, and young gymnasts’ extra practice time. Tumbling mats are an investment you’ll wish you’d made years ago.
As cold temperatures overtake much of the United States, tumbling mats invite the kids to continue to be active even if it’s too cold to go outside to play. Too often, being indoors means time in front of a screen, whether it’s a tv screen or video game, and while there’s always a time and a place for still, quiet activities, you know that promoting an active lifestyle doesn’t end just because you can’t go outdoors. When you bring out a tumbling mat, suddenly the kids have a reason to be energetic and physical again. Tumbling, wrestling, even snack and nap time can all happen right on the tumbling mats. They’re easy to sweep off and wipe down when you need to, and at the end of the day you can simply fold them up and tuck them away.
Of course, tumbling mats are the foundational apparatus for any child heading into a gymnastics practice. When they come home from instruction at the gym, the first thing they want to do is show off what they’ve learned. When you provide them with a safe place to do that, you communicate your support of the activity as well as encouragement for their extended practice time. The thick, supportive mats will take the edge off little slips and falls and allow the kids to get right back up to make another attempt. Under your supervision, they might even get a little daring and try a thing or two that’s just out of their reach…for now!
Tumbling mats are your ticket to keeping your kids active, regardless of the weather or your ability to get them to the gym. When it’s too cold (or too…whatever) for kids to be able to do what they do best outdoors, make sure they have a tumbling mat so they can stay active, entertained and challenged indoors.
