The Parachute Game will give your little ones endless fun - either at home, on holiday, in your garden, on the beach - wherever the mood takes you. The brightly coloured parachute is made from nylon allowing the parachute to float gradually improving the fun. The game also comes with coloured balls which can be incorporated into many different games and activities. This really is maximum entertainment in one simple, compact game. There are so many games you can play with the parachute, (too many to list them all here)include mexican wave, popcorn as well as various name, number and quiz games - the list goes on! You could even create your own.
Our favourite is called 'busy bees' - one adult or the oldest child is elected the 'queen bee'. The other children are then given names such as 'worker' 'honey bee' 'drone' 'bumble' and any other bee names you can think of (you can make these up if you like). The 'queen bee' then randomly says, "Go to work honey bee" or any other of the names you have chosen and the child named that name needs to run around underneath the parachute as the other children fling it in the air (and back to their place before it comes back down). When the queen bee shouts, "Busy bees!" all children run under the parachute and then must find another space to stand around the parachute that is different from the one before!
