You know how a children's parachute will be used?
Hang on there - maybe you didn’t consider…


Lift up the parachute and run under before it falls
Bounce balls on top like popcorn
Fling it into the air and watch it drift down
Run underneath it and watch the colors rain down around you
Throw a few stuffed animals in the center and bounce them around
Put a baby underneath the parachute in the middle and pull it gently up and down for a game of peek-a-boo; baby finds it a hoot and so does everyone else
Achieve refreshing shade by draping over a piece of string strung between trees
Pile leaves (or snowballs) on the parachute and then toss them all over
Play tag while the parachute is periodically raised and lowered
Make waves
Drape the parachute over a sunny window and give a room a fanciful glow
Spread it out as a picnic blanket
Place small balls in the middle and then launch them all into the air at once
Pull a child who is seated on top all around the house
Catapult teddy bears using the parachute, up into the air and through a hula hoop
Make it go up and down with other kids
Play London Bridges, lowering the parachute over kids who are weaving in and out
Give your snow fortress an update
See how long you can keep a ball bouncing on it
See how high you can throw & catch a ball in the parachute
Make a fort to hide in
Raise and lower it over children who are lying on their backs underneath & make them scream with laughter
Drape the parachute over the table and then play under it
Lift it up high, lower it behind your backs & sit on the inside edges to make a giant mushroom
Take a picture of your kids playing with the parachute for a memory that will always make you smile

    "Our family holds it up and our son stands underneath. When it flows down, it drapes over him lightly and it helps with his sensory awareness. Since it is so bright, the colors intrigue him. He wants to touch it and even use it as a cape to run with. It is a little to big for that so we have to help him so he doesn't trip. He has learned colors by identifying them on the parachute as well as matching the colors and counting!"

    Playchute Parachute
    Posted 3/4/2011 by Kathleen Honeycutt

    I bought this parachute for my sons 1st birthday! We did an airplane theme and it seemed appropriate. I am a former teacher and i know how much enjoyment my students got out of playing with the parachute at school. I have a 3 1/2 year old son as well and they both LOVE the parachute. Anything from crawling on the top to hiding underneath it. When it is just the four of us its hard to create the mushroom effect however if we all get under it, my husband and i hold it up with our heads and the kids can crawl around underneath it. When we are around family with all our nieces and nephews this is a must have! We put balls on top and play games like cat and mouse, etc. If you can't tell from what i have written i am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it. The only thing that i would have preferred was to be able to select my own colors for the parachute, we recieved the neon colors and i probaly would have selected the primary....however no one seems bothered by the colors.
