What You’ll Need: ball pit balls & parachute

How to Play:

Step 1: Create 3 or more teams of 4 making certain there are enough people to cover the parameter of the parachute (you may need to adjust these numbers depending on the size of your parachute). Assign 1 color to each team from the assortment of ball pit ball colors.

Step 2: Open the parachute and place team members around the parameter of the parachute instructing them to hold on to its edge. Everyone should be evenly spaced around the parachute. Team members should be positioned as 1 person from every other team around the parameter of the parachute – no 2 team members from the same team should be standing side-by-side.

Step 3: Place 4 balls of each teams color in the center of the parachute (so each team should have 4 balls in the center of the parachute that represents their teams color).

Step 4: At the “go” signal, teams will begin to create waves in the parachute to get the balls moving around. Keeping their hands holding the edge of the parachute, teams will try to conquer the other teams by allowing or directing the other teams balls over the edge of the parachute. Conquering the other teams won’t be that easy as teams must also try to rescue their balls from going over the edge. The team who’s ball color is the last to remain on the parachute OR the last to fall over the edge wins Conquer & Rescue!

Team members should be positioned as 1 person from every other team around the parameter of the parachute – no 2 team members from the same team should be standing side-by-side.

Step 3: Empty out a large portion of ball pit balls in the center of the circle underneath the parachute (this is best done on a grassy area to prevent the balls from rolling about). Be certain that for each ball color there is an even number. Assign 1 ball color to each team.

Step 4: At the “go” signal, everyone holding the parachute will simultaneously lift the parachute by quickly extending their arms over their heads (this will create sort of a rainbowed dome). Once the parachute is lifted, it must be allowed to fall at its own pace while the edges are still being held by the teams – no one is to pull it down.

Step 5: When the parachute is lifted, teams will rotate 1 member from each team to scurry into the center to grab as many balls of their teams color as possible and carry them out of the parameter before the parachute comes down (balls may not be thrown out from under the parachute). When the parachute comes down, any team member caught under the parachute will be disqualified from the game. Everyone will once again lift the parachute then the next team member from each team must hurry to get as many balls of their teams color before the parachute comes down. The team that is the first to get all their balls out from under the parachute wins Object Scurry! You’ll love adding this to your fun outdoor games collection.
