By Natalia Pareja, Acorns teacher
If only for one moment
My feet could leave the ground.
The breeze below
My arms spread wide.
I’m off into the sky.
What a hoot,
to ride inside my parachute.
Simply tie off the corners of a bandanna, napkin, silk handkerchief (or the like) using yarn, string, or thread onto a stick, cloth, or another item. Delight in watching your child take off with the wind, discovering flight and gravity.
These are fun thrown into the air or held in hand!
