House of Education Parachute For Little Children
Young children will adore this small colourful parachute. With a more compact size, this is perfect for playing with at home or with small groups of tots. Hold on to the eight handles and lift it up and down over squealing children; run underneath it, use to flip balls and toys up into the air and into the central hole - the possibilities are endless with this open-ended toy. It will be a popular toy at nurseries, playgroups, primary school and other education settings but a favourite at home in the garden too. Waldorf educators will love the flexibility of this toy.
This parachute has been made in Germany and measures 1.6m in diameter.
Suitable from 18 months.
Montessori education is a child-centred learning approach that promotes independent thinking and creativity, and gives children the freedom to make their own spontaneous choices. It has been developed from the research of the Italian doctor and educator, Maria Montessori, who worked with children with special educational needs in the early 20th century. Beautiful toys – from beads to wooden blocks, peg puzzles, wooden figures and shapes - become educational tools to encourage learning through play. Engagement with the natural world is a key feature of Montessori education too.
