Here is a version of a traditional cooperative parachute game that is designed to help children feel that they belong. Children have to listen carefully and work together to make the game work.
Explain that in this game they are going to use the parachute to make a giant salad, just like Uncle Jim and friends in the video. As they move the parachute up and down, children will call each other’s name to come into the bowl. The message they’ll learn is: You are valuable to our salad!
This game works best outside or in a large, open space.
Children watch a video skit and play a cooperative game focused on taking turns and empowering each other.
