Wriggle run

Parachute game

Equipment required

  • Parachute (or space blanket)
  • Facilitators for children, only if they need them

Play method

  • Sitting on stools or chairs in a circle, the group are helped by  their mums and dads (or other adults) to hold the parachute (or space blanket) as tightly as possible while their brothers, sisters and friends wriggle underneath.
  • Older more able children wriggle underneath, as adults and some children gently move the parachute (or space blanket). Once in the middle, they hold it up for others to join them.
