Parachute games encourage cooperative, non-competitive play and reinforce turn-taking and sharing. The games are a lot of fun for children of all ages and abilities. A wide variety of different games can be played, and beanbags and balls can be introduced to widen the activities. First-play® parachutes are made from a light nylon material of the type used for real parachutes and contain a central mesh hole. Each multicoloured parachute incorporates handles around the edge of the canopy for easy grip.
