Challenge and Discover – Can you make a parachute?

Huge thanks to everyone who joined us for the vehicle challenge, Trisha and I really do love seeing all your posts.

This month the challenge is to make a parachute, we’d love to see how you made it, what the thought process behind it was and if it works. You could try attaching an egg to the bottom, maybe in a basket and see if it can land without breaking?

Remember to be careful and get a grown up to help you drop it from somewhere high up.

We made our parachute from a square of plastic and some ribbon.
