Keeping Kids Active: Parachute

    By: Dawn Juntilla

    My kids love playing with parachutes at school and birthday parties.  I discovered it was easy to replicate at home with a sheet.  Grab any sheet and have adults and children hold the edges.  Move the sheet up and down by raising and lowering your arms together. The kids can take turns running under the parachute.  Chances are they will also want to hide under it, crawl under it and roll in it too!  Share your great ideas for keeping kids active in the comments below.
