How to Play

Each participant holds on to the parachute with two hands. The leader calls out three instructions in which ever order they like:

  • Calm seas – pull the parachute tight so it is not moving at all
  • Gentle waves – gently wave the parachute so it ripples slowly
  • Stormy seas! – wave the parachute as hard as you can

Repeat these instructions in different orders throughout the game.

  •  You can add balls or make paper boats to place on top of the parachute and try and throw them off when you are doing stormy seas!
