Spring Parachutes
Breezy spring days are the perfect time to discover how the wind works.
Materials needed:
• Paper cup
• Handkerchief, square piece of cloth, or plastic grocery bag
• 4 pieces of string (approximately 8 inches long)
• Paper punch
• Pennies or plastic figurines
What to do:
Step One: Punch four evenly spaced holes around the top of the paper cup. Tie one end of a piece of string to each hole.
Step Two: Tie each loose end of string to one of the four corners of the cloth (or make four corners from the grocery bag).
Step Three: Add pennies or plastic figurines to the bottom of the paper cup for balance. This will make your parachute glide longer.
Step Four: Throw your parachute from a hill, bridge, or staircase where it can be easily retrieved. Try adding more pennies or figurines for different glide lengths.
