Parachute: Bean Bag Steal

Parachute: Bean Bag Steal

State Standard: 1, 3, & 4

Equipment:  Parachute large enough for all to hold, bean bags
Grade: K-2
Purpose of Event: Movement, teamwork, Upper body strength, Move safely in general space.
Time: 10 minutes

Place blue, red, green and yellow bean bags under the chute (or what ever colors match your chute). When a color is called that they’re holding on to, they run under to get that color bean bag and return before they are trapped.

Inflate chute, run under and grab one bean bag that matches your color and put it on the floor behind you, outside of the chute. Take turns calling each color. After each student has 2-3 bean bags, start “putting them back” one at a time.


Concerns: Cautious moving around the parachute, could be slippery if stepped on.
