I always loved when the teacher would take the parachute out in gym class. Not being athletic, this was my opportunity to participate doing something I enjoyed. Not much has changed since then, I’m still not athletic and I still love to play with the parachute, only now it’s with my own children.
The parachute measures approximately 11.5ft. There are 8 triangles with a handle at each seam. There is approximately 4 ft between each of the handles. This is a great distance to keep between the children, so that flailing arms and legs don’t injure the other players.
The parachute is made from 100% polyester with a mesh center. It is easy to spot clean when it gets a little dirty. It is lightweight and comes with a bright orange storage bag. To fold it for storage we simply keep folding the parachute in half until it fits in.
The “Magicfly Parachute” is fun for all ages. It encourages team work and communication skills. There are endless games that you can play using the parachute, “Parachute Tag” and “Popcorn” are always favourite games to play.
