My top tip would be to try and pour the bags out in the middle of the parachute for maximum snowosity. After all the snowballs flew out of the parachute, I had the kids run and grab them so we could play again. The second time, we had a contest to see who could pick the most up and bring them to me.
Has anyone done this before? I don't think I saw this on a storytime blog, but maybe? If you posted it, let me know and I'll edit this.
I love this idea! Hopefully, I can use it at a future storytime!ReplyDelete
We have done this before! We use white shower loofah's instead. (They can also double for popcorn.) We got the idea from Carole Peterson.ReplyDelete
I am totally unfamiliar with Carole Peterson (except I have heard a few songs), so I will check that out.ReplyDelete
OMG,thank you,Anne! I am SO doing this at programs next week--will try it out on my favorite preschool class this week!ReplyDelete
Love the parachute! I do a snowball fight with cotton balls every year--we just throw them around, but never with the parachute. Love it!ReplyDelete
What a fun (and easy!) idea! I love this. Thanks for sharing it!ReplyDelete
I used this idea this morning at storytime. It was perfectly simple and the kids and parents LOVED it! Thanks!ReplyDelete
