Playing with a Gonge Parachute provides exercise for the whole body. It's is a wonderful way to develop basic physical coordination.
Sizes: 6', 12' and 20'
Made of colorful, lightweight, fire-resistant polyester with very strong handles, the parachute inspires many different games and activities. A strong 10 mm thick rope is sewn into the outer edge.
*Why are parachutes a good play activity for children?
Parachute games encourage cooperative, non-competitive play and reinforce turn-taking and sharing. While most gross motor activities for young children develop muscles in the lower body more than the upper torso, parachutes strengthen primarily shoulder, arm and hand muscles.
When children work together to make the parachute billow, they also refine perceptual motor skills and develop a sense of rhythm. Language activities can also be incorporated into most parachute games.
Parachutes are a lot of fun for both children and adults to play with, especially in large, grassy areas in the summertime. The opportunities to encourage children's overall development with this exciting activity make it an ideal choice for early childhood programming.
Benefits of parachute play include:
- Encourages cooperation
- Strengthens upper torso
- Differing abilities are non-issue
- Refines perceptual skills
- Reinforces turn-taking/ sharing
- Develops a sense of rhythm
- Requires following directions
- Promotes social interaction
- Enhances language development
