Also included are the Action Kids warm-up song and calm-down song with accompanying activities. Throughout the manual there are many examples of stories, action songs, role play, music etc. which involve children working together to use the parachute,e.g. go underneath it, on top of it, and use small equipment and toys with it.
At their heart, all parachute games are sensory. They involve touching the parachute silk, moving beneath it or over it, lying beneath the canopy, watching it rise and fall above them or even being lifted in it or wrapped up like a birthday present!!
For many children these will be new and exciting sensations, and working together can not only encourage co-operation, communication and social skills, but can create unforgettable experiences and a great deal of FUN!!
Suitable for childminders, nursery practitioners, primary school teachers, play leaders and adults taking in-school or out-of-school clubs.
