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!
