parachute toy

May 8th, 2011 by zoe No Comments

We had a blast yesterday!  I thought it would be fun to design a better version of those cheap parachute toys out of recycled tyvek fed-ex mailers.  It sewed up in minutes and an older child could probably make this project all by themselves.

The boys and I tried every stuffed animal and toy to see who flew best off the back deck and the top of the tree house.  In the end with the help of a plastic cup it became a hot air balloon and a little doll house girl got the very best rides of the day.  See which of your favorite toys parachutes best!

 

Click pattern, save to a file, and print directions to make your own parachute toy!
