Bouncy Town USAAre your kids climbing the walls with extra energy to burn? Pick up four $5 gift cards for Bouncy Town USA for just $10! Community Change and Bouncy Town are offering this deal for the next three days.

Bouncy Town is located in Windsor just north of Madison. Bouncy Town offers five inflatables for kids to jump on. There are also two areas designed just for the little ones: a smaller inflatable for kids under three, and upstairs is a large playroom filled with fun toys.

My kids love playing at Bouncy Town. It’s a great place for them to burn some energy–especially in the winter when it’s too cold to play outside.

The $5 gift cards are valid for admission only, and one per customer per visit is allowed. The gift cards are valid until October 31, 2012. These would make great party favors!

Head to Community Change to get more info about the four $5 gift cards for $10.

For each deal you purchase, Community Change donates a portion of the proceeds to the charity of your choice.
