Here’s a great craft that will get kids outside and experimenting with STEM! Home made parachute toys are a great alternative to cheap toys that just get tangled into knots.
You kids can personalize their parachutes with markers or crayons, adding extra fun.
Experiment with different toys and different chute materials. What works best? Which ones can you throw?
If you have a backyard tree house or 2nd story deck, those are great places to drop your parachutes. We like taking our parachute guys to the park and dropping them from the jungle gyms!
Here's a tangle free, super light weight parachute and a DIY stuntman built of fuzzy sticks.
