5 ways to use a parachute during a Music Time

5 ways to use a parachute during a music time

Do you currently use your parachute during your Music Time?  If not it's time to get it out of the cupboard; it's a great resource!  You may like to try some of these ideas:

1. Move it!

Whether you are singing a song or listening to a piece of music a parachute is great for the children to develop their sense of pulse.  This can be done by moving it up and down, in and out or from side to side. 

2. Bounce things on top

There’s no end to this with counting songs/rhymes. 

Listen to music and bounce balls, teddies, balloons...to the music.

3. Moving around in a circle

The parachute helps to keep the children in a circle.  This is great when you want children to march around and then change direction during a song. 

4. Go underneath

Sometimes when you are listening to music hiding under a parachute is great to create an atmosphere.

5. Alter it slightly

I have some parachutes that I have altered slightly.  I have attached ribbons that have velcro at the bottom so that I can hang pictures underneath.

Go on, get that parachute out during your Music Time.
