Institutional Classic Play Parachutes

Remember how cool it was when your elementary school gym teacher brought out the parachute? It seems like it only happened about once a year, but it's one activity that is remembered by adults very fondly. Our institutional quality parachutes are a wonderful way to give your kids this colorful experience!

Group games:
Place a ball at the top of the parachute with the kids holding it at waist level. Have them work together to roll the ball around the edge, switching directions, and to the center.

Put the balls in the center of the parachute and have the kids make waves with it, creating a 'popcorn' effect.

Team competition games:
Place one ball in the center of the parachute and let two teams work to try to make the ball fly off the opposite side.

Assign colors to each team and have them try to send their color down the hole in the center.
