Trading Places: Call out a birthday month, color, or preassigned number and have kids run under the play parachute and trade places before the parachute falls.
Parachute Ball: Each half of the large parachute for kids is a different team. A ball is placed in the middle. Each team tries to knock the ball off the other team's half of the chute by making waves.
Bubble: On the count of three, everyone lifts the childrens play parachute as high as they can, then steps inside and sits down, creating an air bubble.
Popcorn: Place small balls on the kids parachute and wave it up and down to make them bounce like popcorn.
Durable, Reinforced Handles
Unlike other parachutes for kids, the Play Platoon Play Parachute toy features strong reinforced handles designed to withstand heavy use and stay attached. We know that kids play rough, but this durable kids play parachute is ready.
More Handles for More Fun
We doubled the number of handles on the average 12' kids parachute, so more children can play and have fun at the same time. Makes a great group game for parties, schools, church groups, clubs, and other organizations.
Perfect for Educational Play
Play parachutes build teamwork and cooperation, increase upper body strength, enhance motor skills and coordination, all while being a fun and exciting game.
Although, It has been about forty years since I was in elementary school I still vividly remember when we would do different activities in physical education with an enormous off-white parachute. Popcorn being one of my absolute favorites. This parachute is much smaller than the one we used in our class of thirty children making it the perfect size for families, neighborhood children, friends, church or scout groups to use. With my newest grandchildren, I now have eight that local so I know that we will be using this at their birthday parties, holiday gatherings, and when they come to spend time at our house. I spent some time checking out the material and stitching, and both are top quality. The material was strong and vibrant. The stitching straight and tight. I am very satisfied with the product I received and would recommend it with confidence to my friends and family.
