I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'kids jump about in it' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'brewer's plants bed situated by church' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'plants' could be 'hops' (hop is a kind of plant) and 'hops' is found within the answer.
'bed' could be 'cot' (cot is a kind of bed) and 'cot' is found in the answer.
'church' could be 'ch' (common abbreviation) and 'ch' is located in the answer.
No letters remain.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).
