Parachute Fun

What child doesn’t love a parachute?! Some of my favorite memories from elementary school are playing with the parachute in gym class. This is a great activity for the summer (we also pull ours out in the middle of the winter when we’re getting stir-crazy); it’s fun to invite friends (and their moms) over for some fun!! And this is an activity that is great for multi-age groups.

You can purchase parachutes at any teacher supply store, but I’ve noticed that even Target has been carrying them lately. They run about $25, depending on the size. Mine is smaller, but perfect for our needs. And, if a parachate is too expensive, a sheet works well, too.

Here is a link with many different games: http://www.preschooleducation.com/gparachute.shtml  You can pick and choose according to how many children are involved!!
