PARACHUTE TAG

parachute tag

Looking for some excitement? Play parachute tag. Have students gather around the parachute. Have participants lift the parachute high overhead. Call one participants name and have her / him run (skip, hop, twirl or crawl) to the other side before the parachute comes down and tags her. You can shout out several names at once to speed up the activity.

BIBLE TIE-IN

Recently, while playing parachute activities I asked a group of 9-11 year olds how the parachute could be connected to the Bible and here were some of their incredible responses:

  • JOSEPH – One child said the colors of the parachute reminded her of Joseph’s coat of many colors.
  • NOAH The parachute reminded some of the rainbow that God placed in the sky as His promise to Noah that he would never again destroy the earth with water.
  • PETER – The flapping of the parachute looks like the waves of the water, when Peter walked on the water.

Any of these could easily be a Bible lesson that you use with your class. It was so fun just talking with the kids as we talked about different Bible stories.
