Item Details

Children love parachute play. They get the chance to move around, be silly, and have fun. But there's more to parachute play than games. The activities in 3-2-1: Time for Parachute Fun are sure to get kids laughing while they're learning to count, cooperate, follow directions, and move their bodies in new ways. With activities that promote social and emotional growth, imaginative play, and listening and communication skills, this fantastic resource provides parents, teachers, and caregivers with plenty of ideas to get children moving and learning. The book is divided into three parts: ·nbsp;nbsp; nbsp;The Introduction offers safety tips, information on purchasing a parachute, and ideas for more fun ways to use parachutes. ·nbsp;nbsp; nbsp;The chapter "Parachute Games--No Props Necessary" includes activities that only require a parachute, like The Parachute Pokey, Under the Big Top!, and In My Tent. ·nbsp;nbsp; nbsp;The last chapter, "Playing Parachute Games with Props," is full of activities that use easy-to-find props, including: Into the Bucket You Go!, Matching Pairs, and All Dressed Up. Each activity includes step-by-step instructions, and many also include ideas for expanding activities to support further learning. Children ages 3-10 will love these easy and fun activities.
