Remember these toys?

Maybe not, but I certainly do.  I grew up with 3 brothers and these parachute toys were some of our favorite loot bag items.

The other day I was searching for some craft ideas and I came across
this simple idea @

As usual I took this inspirational craft and made it my own. 
I didn't have any "J cloths" so I used bread bags instead.
It takes a little practice to get the correct string length and appropriate toy weight but when you do,
watch out!
 Opal had lots of fun with this simple idea.

PS- Stay tuned because later this week I'll show you how we made a backyard croquet set out of platic pop bottles.
