Here are some Game Ideas!
SEE-SAW PULL - From a sitting position, children pull the chute back and forth in a see-sawing motion.
MAKE WAVES - While gripping the parachute handles, everyone moves their arms up and down to make small and large waves.
BALL ROLL - Children try to roll balls into the hole in the centre of the parachute.
CHUTE LIFT - Children lift the parachute high over their heads and down again, listening for soft sounds and feeling breezes that are created. Move the parachute faster and notice the different effects.
MUSHROOM - From a standing position, children lift the parachute from the ground to overhead on the count of 3. Then all crouch quickly down. A mushroom effect is created as the parachute settles.
PARACHUTE TAG - Lift the parachute high overhead. Call one child's name and have him/her run (skip, hop, twirl or crawl) to the other side before the parachute comes down and tags him/her.
ONE HAND RUN - Each child holds the parachute with one hand, extending the opposite arm out for balance. Run around in one direction, then change and run around in the other direction. A variation would be to use music as the cue for changing direction (i.e. direction can be changed every time the music stops).
