Making a parachute for a lego man!

My preschooler has been begging me to make a parachute with him for some time. Well, the weather was warmer and we were doing ‘Space week’ so I thought it seemed like a good opportunity to do so. I found this excellent link from Leap Frog describing how to make a parachute, so we set about giving it a go. We needed to use more plastic to make it more aerodynamic, so we gave it another go with a bigger bag. But it worked well, and it was a great lesson that we don’t always get things right first time – but we try again!


Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
