Parachute Play

Kid's Parachute Play explain's and explores why this delightful form of play can be easily added to your activity box. Mom's, teachers and group leaders will enjoy the ease of use and implementation. Parachutes are easy to use and maintain, which is always an added plus when working with children. The circle formed in parachute play creates a group awareness, like holding hands in a circle, each member is very aware of being part of the group. Playing with a parachute promotes co-operative teamwork as the players work together toward a creative outcome.

Is exceptional fun!

Children love it!

And the child in you, will too!

Children Love It!


In parachute games the focus is on playing and not winning. Enjoying the moment and the time spent together in joyous activity. There are competitive games but the players are having such a wonderful time, they simply want to get on to the next round. In parachute play everybody wins.

Parachute Play Is Creative Play

How often do you have the chance to play with a flowing swatch of colorful fabric? This rare opportunity triggers our creative sensibilities. Imagination takes over and we are ready to become characters in a novel. The huge billowing fabric can become an ocean, cloud or tropical island. Parachutes lend themselves to imaginative play.


" A Bigger Than Life Adventure"

With Your Kids

Adaptable & Inexspensive

Parachute games are adaptable to your needs. You can play for 10 minutes or one hour. They are easy to unpack and store, so your valuable time won't be wasted setting up or taking down the equipment. They work well for both noisy and quiet games. You can play with 2 players or up to 40. This is a game where players of different abilities, sizes, and ages can play together.

Parachutes are inexspensive. Considering the diversity of players that can participate, parachutes are a great investment. With proper care your parachute should last for years. Low cost items such as foam rubber balls, Frisbees, ropes, and a large beach ball will complement your parachute games.

Parachute Play Is Delightful Fun

Parachute play is delightful fun. Imagination takes over and we can become a pirate, princess or treasure hunter through role playing. We can practice and learn cooperation. Everyone feels like a winner regardless of size, age or ability. Parachute play is one of the most exciting and versatile pieces of play equipment for groups available.
