Plastic Grocery Bag Mini Parachutes for Mini Daredevils

All our tiniest stuffed animals and action figures are taking turns parachuting down from the sky.

Teddy was a little scared at first, but now he loves it. It's such fun!


  • plastic grocery bag
  • scissors
  • ruler
  • fishing line or thread
  • lightweight stuffed animal or action figure
  1. Cut a 12" x 12" square from the plastic grocery bag.
  2. Carefully poke a hole in each corner with a pencil point or other pointed object.
  3. Cut 5 lengths of thread - approximately 8" long.
  4. Tie a length of thread in each corner of the plastic square.
  5. Tie all four threads in a knot on the end furthest from the parachute.
  6. Tie the fifth piece of thread around the knot and around the arm of the bear.
  7. Loosely fold the parachute in the palm of your hand, and place the bear on top.
  8. Throw the parachute and the bear way up into the air, and watch him float down.

I used to tie string around my animals. Took the screen out of my window and throw it out the window and watch it fly!
