I Cannot Improve Upon This Scene

"Where does the rainbow end, in your soul or on the horizon?" - Pablo Nerudo

Satchel's favorite part of "Little Bits" class is when Ms. Kim brings out the parachute. What is it about that magical, rainbow colored, billowing piece of fabric that induces such excitement and wonder?

I recently discovered a smaller 10' home-friendly version of the play-chute by Pacific Play Tents and decided to try it out at Satchel's class...

and the children had just as much fun with this one as the jumbo version used in classrooms.

The chute is strong, yet light weight. It's machine washable, and comes in a storage pouch and it's inexpensive, indispensable fun!

Do you have a playchute?
What kind of games do you play with it?
(I'm looking for ideas for Satchel's upcoming birthday party in May)

In honor of National Poetry Month, I offer you these words...

I will not play tug o' war.
I'd rather play hug o' war.
Where everyone hugs instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins,
and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.

- Shel Silverstein
Have a good weekend, everyone!!!

In re: scene improvement. Nor any, nor any, I too seldom realize until it is too late.
