Last night Emma put our large cooler on top of the small trampoline we have and climbed on top with a plastic grocery bag. I managed to convince her that it wouldn’t quite work as a parachute, and instead suggested we try something else. We ended up making parachutes out of a plastic garbage bag, string, and some tape. The only tools used were a magic marker and a pair of scissors. We attached the parachutes to little people that the girls had and then tossed them from the top of the swing set. It was a great success. Here’s a photo of one of them sailing through the air.
