Big, coloured Parachute and Ball
Our brightly coloured, durable, non-rip nylon parachute (3.5m) has plenty of room for the whole class and will inspire exhilarating games as well as restful relaxation. It is always a popular treat. With 12 handles to help little hands hold on, it also packs down into a small, neat drawstring bag for storage. We are now including a lovely strong and bright beach ball as so many of the parachute games need a ball. They can both be used in the classroom and outside.
Format: Parachute 3.5 m diameter, multi coloured inflatable ball 20in/41cm.
Making Waves by Jenny Mosley and Helen Sonnet. It’s all very well having a parachute but do you know what to do with it? This 80-page handbook is based on Jenny and Helen’s extensive experience of developing parachute games. It is suitable for schools, youth groups, social services and health departments. This book will teach you how to get started with a parachute, develop active and reflective games, and end a session calmly. If you find that after a couple of activities you are struggling for ideas, this wonderful collection of games is precisely what you need to get the most out of your parachute. Parachute games are an exciting way to develop children’s self confidence, team building and co-operation skills, and emotional literacy. In addition, they are incredible fun!
‘Making Waves’ is an essential resource for the creative and meaningful use of parachute games. “…a wonderful way to have fun and build teams – store this book in the bag with the ‘chute’!”
