Why not try – Parachute Games: Encourage cooperative, non-competitive play and reinforce turn-taking and sharing. The games are a lot of fun for both children and adults and opportunities for making up new games are endless. You could start by trying this one: Rollerball, a game where children hold the ‘chute taut, place a football near the edge and try to make the ball roll around the edge of the ‘chute without stopping. To do this, someone starts the ball rolling and as it comes towards you, you lower the edge you are holding and as it goes passed you raise your edge. As you start getting more confident you can try changing the direction or speeding up. The great thing about the game is that the group have to work together to keep the game going.
