Talk about a walk down memory lane.
My mom purchased a play parachute for the girls to use during our visit to Houston.
My sister, hubby and I were reliving our youth from PE classes in elementary school and the girls were experiencing something totally new and awesome to them.
We first played with just the parachute. Up and down, making a mushroom cloud and getting inside it.
Then, we remembered that we used soft-foamy balls as “popcorn” to bounce around the parachute. We didn’t have any of those, so we used some linky toys instead.
We spread them out on the parachute.
Then, we grabbed onto the handles and bounced the “popcorn” around. I wouldn’t really recommend this source of “popcorn” as it goes pretty high and isn’t the softest. I guess we learned why we used foam balls in elementary school.
Obviously, they had a blast, though! That’s some joy right there.
Evidence of the “shrapnel popcorn” flung around grandma’s living room.
Then, the girls grew tired of holding onto the parachute, and jumped on for a ride. They were a little heavier than the previous “popcorn” so they didn’t fly off!
