Parachute Games


Number Trade:

   Count off numbers by fours, as the group holds the parachute in a circle formation. The instructor counts: "one, two, three"and the parachute is raised up. The leader calls out a number while the parachute is up high. The children with the called out number changes places by running under the parachute to the other side to a new position, while the rest of the group holds the parachute up. After several called numbers, try calling two numbers like 2 and 4. It becomes challenging.  The more numbers called the more fun it is to make it to the other side before the parachute comes down.

Race to the Other Side:

 Divide the class into two teams.  Similar to Number Trade, each team counts off numbers 1 to 4. When all lift the parachute, a number is called like 1 and all one's changes places by going under the chute.  The first team to reach the other side, scores a point for their team.  Play till one team reaches ten points.
