Playchutes (parachutes designed specifically for play) are multi-coloured, multi-age and multi-fun from the moment they appear from their bags to the moment they are packed away. They are increasingly valued as a tool in Christian teaching and worship activities, including storytelling, songs, prayers, praise, reflection and games, as they naturally encourage many of the values at the heart of the Christian faith.

Parachute Fun for Everyone is packed with 50 pick-and-mix activity ideas to use with children, from under-fives through to teenagers, mixed-age groups including adults, and those with special needs, in nursery schools; camps; clubs; churches; Sunday schools; primary schools; assemblies; community festivals; family days; spiritual retreats or training days.

Guidance is given as to energy levels, from warm-ups to cool-downs (and everything in between), suitable age groups (from preschool to adult and mixed-age) and necessary accessories.

Many of the activities are adapted from well-known parachute and circle games long in use. What makes them valuable beyond the fun factor is the opportunity for spiritual growth as you explore and respond to their themes together.
