DIY Parachute Craft - Win!

This past weekend was a cold and crappy Sunday, complete with snow. Yay Calgary! We decided to stay inside and have a cozy family day which means crafts and baking. I'm always looking for new little crafts for the Munchkin and this looked like an easy winner

To make your Parachute
1 dinner sized napkin
Hole punch
Yarn or string
Paratrooper (we used a driver from one of Munchkins cars)

The instructions are simple
Spread out napkin (I decorated ours since plain white was boring)
Place clear tape on each corner on both sides of the napkin for support
Punch a hole in each corner, about an inch in
String yarn though holes
Tie two strands together
Tie a second knot in each already tied strand to create a little arm hole for your 'volunteer' paratrooper
Attach your paratrooper to the yarn

Then DROP!

This was a super cute and easy craft. Pictures will come - I didn't take any since I wasn't sure how this would go over.
Munchkin love it! It provided a whole 5 minutes of entertainment which is hours in when converted into toddler time.
A great little rainy day craft!
