Remember how exciting it was when your elementary school gym teacher brought out the parachute? Parachutes are a lot of fun for both children and adults to play with, especially in large, grassy areas in the summertime. The opportunities to encourage children's overall development with this exciting activity make it an ideal choice for early childhood programming.
Parachute games encourage cooperative, non-competitive play and reinforce turn-taking and sharing. While most motor activities for young children develop muscles in the lower body more than the upper torso, parachutes strengthen primarily shoulder, arm and hand muscles. When children work together to make the parachute billow, they also refine perceptual motor skills and develop a sense of rhythm. Language activities can also be incorporated into most parachute games. Many of these games can be found within the Parachute Games Book with DVD!
The KinderChute measures either 6 feet or 12 feet in diameter, and includes 8 or 16 reinforced handholds. The multi-colored chute is machine washable. For easy transport, try the KinderChute Storage Bag (sold separately).
