Easy peasy plastic parachutes!
Everyone knows how beautiful parachutes look as they majestically float through the air and gracefully fall to the ground. What they don’t know is how easy it is to make your own…
We made these super fun parachutes at Story Inc on 4 November, 2015 after reading the beautifully illustrated book Parachute. This gorgeous story talks about relying on a safety net and gradually growing the confidence to be able to free yourself.
Story Inc presents two interactive 30 minute workshops in the Karrinyup Shopping Centre food court on Wednesday mornings which offer parents and children a variety of story reading, movement, craft and music activities. These activities are carefully selected to inspire young minds, foster an early love of reading and develop listening, concentration and early literacy skills.
What you will need:
8 pieces of wool or light string cut to the same length
Very light, small toy (such as a Lego man)
Release your parachute from a high level and watch it float to the ground! Race against your friends. An action shot was extremely difficult to capture, but believe me…they work!
