Aims: Developing attention and orientation in space.
Required materials: A special colored “parachute” for the game.
Educational game description:
The colored material is stretched out and the children have to grasp the ends around it, forming a circle.
Variants of game:
Option 1. We’re under the parachute. At the start, all children raise the parachute, then fall under it and squat.
Option 2. Change location. When the teacher calls out two names, the nominated children must run under the material to change their places between them.
Option 3. Play toy. Above the material lies the Smart Smurf Mascot. The children will throw the saddle up and try to keep it on the material. The game ends when the Smart Smurf falls off.
Option 4. Cat and mouse.
In the middle of the parachute, which is stretched out on the ground, there is a child sitting on the knee with support on hands, which has the role of a cat. The cat runs after the other children, who play the mice, and who stand on the outside limits of parachute until they catch someone who will take their place.
Option 5. Birthday party parachute. The holidaymaker stands in the middle of the “parachute” and the invites sing it “Happy Birthday!”
