Parachutes are great props to provide the experience of music! From going loud to quiet, quickly to slowly, and high and low, the parachute can be used to demonstrate these ideas so well. And putting characters or even bouncy balls on it, just makes it more exciting! Parachute games can be used as music games, e.g. divide children into walking beats (crotchets), jogging beats (quavers) and slow beats (minims), and then play one of the beats so that those children can run under!
