Last month I was over at Skip to my Lou last sharing how to make Parachute Toys!  Well, I don’t want any of you to miss out on the fun so here’s my post just in case you missed it over there!

Craft ideas for Kids: Parachute Toy Tutorial

You are going to need basic supplies:

A plastic shopping bag

scissors

string (or baker’s twine if that’s handy)

tape

a small toy figure that isn’t too heavy

Take your bag and cut down each side.  Then you will cut out squares for the parachutes.  For the small parachutes I used 6×6 inch squares 9×9 for the large.

Next, take your string and cut it 9 inches long for a small parachute and 12 inches for a large one.  You will need 4 pieces of string per parachute.

Take the parachute and punch a hole in each corner far enough in that it won’t tear easily, but not too far in.  Tie a piece of string through the hole.  Repeat for each corner.

Once you have a string through each corner, you will take all of the string together and tie in a knot.  You will have a little tail of string which is good.

We are almost there!  Take your tape and secure the string and knot by wrapping it around your figure tightly.

Now hand it off to your kids and watch them play and have a great time!
