Today at Wallsend Day Nursery we have been enjoying some parachute games. The children worked with staff to develop their listening skills, gross motor movements and following directives. Staff demonstrate and talk about what we are going to do and encourage the children throughout. Our children love this game and get really excited when we take out the parachute!
You could do this at home with some material or even an old duvet cover or sheet. We also add in balls and bean bags so the children can launch them in the air during the game.
