Parachute Play

Enjoying outdoors in the sunshine this morning, the children wanted to bring out the parachute.

We were using the parachute to sing rhymes and nursery songs.
We used the puppets to help us and enjoyed shaking and moving the parachute to make the puppets move.

 

This helps to promote communication and language skills and helps to develop a sense of rhythm.

We lift the parachute following the directions in the song, up and down , side to side, round and round, fast and slow, working the upper body, arms and shoulders.

The parachute encourages cooperation, turn taking and sharing as we continue to use the parachute to play games.

The children had so much fun playing with the parachute in the garden.
