Parachute – Encouraging Exercise
Parachutes can be used in a variety of ways and encourage outdoor exercise in a group environment. Parachute is full of play ideas for children to create fun and meaningful physical activity with inspiration, play ideas, and background for the activities. It describes how parachute games can be used in group activities to stimulate social and intellectual development. Since the activities do not rely on the skill of any one person in the group, this is a good physical and emotional outlet for any child with special needs and has been useful as cool-down exercises for children with Autism. While providing enjoyment for kids, parachute play increases upper body strength, enhances gross motor skills, and improves coordination.
