Can you say chaos? Start with everybody holding the chute stretched out. Throw as many pit balls you can find on to the chute. Then see how quickly you can bounce them off without letting go of the chute. When you shout POPCORN the children lift the parachute as high as they can and propel the balls into the air! Alternatively you can have half of the children trying to bounce the balls off and half trying to keep them on. This is a goofy activity but the kids always seem to have a great time.
