- plastic shopping bags
- a paper cup
- Make a parachute out of a plastic shopping bag, yarn, a paper cup and scissors.
- You can test your parachutes by dropping it with eggs.
- (Or, if you are inside you may want to test it using something else, like pennies!)
You can also send us your pictures or video of this ZOOMsci:

We tossed it off the belcony and ran down to catch them. It was a lot of fun!! I used marbles instead of pennies.

I found out if you add to much weight the parachute will not work.
My parachute fell apart!

My parachute went all over like crazy. The strings were tangled a lot. My dad had to help me untangle it for me. Instead of pennies I used five marbles and one bouncy ball. I also used an egg and it survived the tradgedy.

Our parachute worked really well, we enjoy tossing into the air and running to catch it as it floats down.

I had to make it twice. The first time it came down too fast so I cut open the bag more and used longer rubber bands on the cup. The egg did not break!!
