Plastic Bag Parachute


Author:  GSLC

You will need: a plastic grocery bag, scissors, a ruler and a pencil, yarn, a
clothespin pal/small plastic toy (or even a small rock or other similar weight will
suffice).
1. From the grocery bag, cut a piece of plastic at least 14 inches square.
2. Cut four pieces of yarn, each 24 inches long.
3. Use the pencil to poke a hole in each corner of the plastic. Knot a piece of
yarn in each hole.
4. Hold the four yarn ends together and fasten them in an overhand knot as
shown.
5. Tie the yarn around your weight (clothespin pal/small plastic toy/rock/etc.)
6. To prepare your parachute for sky-diving, hold it by the center of the parachute so the
strings and weight hand down. Fold over the parachute and loosely wind the strings and
pal around it to make a small bundle.
7. Toss up the parachute bundle as high as you can. It should float gently to the ground
