With the yuletide carol for inspiration, we’ve cooked up our own “Twelve Days of Christmas” Red Tricycle style.* Each day is filled with a unique activity to keep little elves occupado (and you somewhat sane) through the holidays and beyond. In fact, most of these jolly ideas can be pulled out of your Santa hat any old time of year. So warm up those vocal chords, channel your inner Adele and sing along. And a one and a two and…

With gingerbread men and candy canes out the wazoo, most kids are bouncing off the walls during the holidays. So why not take them someplace where they can literally bounceoffthewalls? Sky High Sports in Woodland Hills is the perfect spot to work out that extra special Christmas energy. As the largest trampoline park in the world, your tikes won't lack for space to jump. There's even a designated Kid Court area for little jumpers under 52 inches. With court supervisors on the lookout and 360 degrees of trampoline walls, safety is as much of a priority here as having fun.

Bonus: Mention "Red Tricycle" during the month of December and Sky High Sports Woodland Hills will give pint-sized jumpers (ages 6 and under) a discounted admission of $5 per hour. Normally, admission runs $12 per hour.

*Okay, okay, we know the “Twelve Days of Christmas” don’t officially kick off till Christmas Day, but we’ve never been very good at playing by the rules. Plus, with your kiddos’ winter breaks fast approaching, we know you have tons of tot-tainment time to fill between now and then. Happy Holidays!
