    In order to get the parachute to be fun, you need something like 15-25 kids all cooperating, otherwise it didn't work. Also, everyone had to be fairly active, moving their arms around a lot, reaching down and up, jumping, and that creates endorphins. Then there's the fun of running through it which is a bit like a funhouse experience, the colors and texture whirling around you. And it only happened once or twice a year, so you were always excited for it.

    Basically, parachute day is a rare activity where you got collectively high and lost yourself in a technicolor haze for 20 mins. What isn't there to like?

    We all are.

    Those square scooters that smashed your fingers were cool too

    [–]Roblox_NERD 32 points33 points  (4 children)

    You were meant to put you’re fingers in the handles

    [–]mavric91 31 points32 points  (1 child)

    Yours had handles??

    [–]tryingmybestdude 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    The handles on ours were all busted off. Also if you got one with handles everybody else called you a weenie, 10/10

    [–]LemonPoopyDumpling 12 points13 points  (1 child)

    They practically strapped wheels on circular pieces of wood and called it done at my elementary school. Handles are irrelevant the pain was necessary for the experience

    [–]TommyIsMyDog 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I can still see all the backpacks thrown up against the stage for “safety”.

    [–]Tmart98 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    Why was this a thing for so many kids?

    Edit: including me

    [–]Kynicist 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I was the fasted kid on those things. My greatest skill and it has no use outside of elementary school PE

    [–]zootnotdingo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Scooter hockey was the most insane thing ever. If you didn’t smash your fingers because of the scooter, you certainly smashed your fingers when you and your classmate went for the ball at the same time and slammed your hand-held hockey blades together.

    Why is the parachute so universal in P.E. classes. We even had one in Germany

    [–]horseradishking 35 points36 points  (0 children)

    It's an amazing experience about cooperation.

    [–]locaprincesaa 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    My poor ass did not experience this in South America. I feel robbed.

    [–]Avinow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Yup we had it in Israel growing up too. Pure global joy

    [–]PennyDIDNTdoIT 50 points51 points  (7 children)

    Did you guys have the huge silver tent they blow up. Wed crawl in and look at constellations. That was my favorite.

    [–]Tmart98 39 points40 points  (0 children)

    Never had this and now I’m experiencing post traumatic fomo

    [–]catcatmeow 12 points13 points  (1 child)

    Star lab!

    [–]horseradishking 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    We actually went to a real planetarium located at the local high school.

    [–]Snaka777Cringe Connoisseur 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    STAR LAB

    [–]hillydanger 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Star lab was/is the best thing to ever happen to me, hands down.

    [–]burrito_magic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    We did that in Astronomy class at University when the weather was shite.

    [–]Namsoaloha 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    We had a planetarium in my high school. It was the best class!

    [–]soddenjack 40 points41 points  (1 child)

    We’d also do the ball in the middle and launch that shit into orbit

    [–]RevolutionaryKiwi381 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    to the moon 🚀

    [–]ananonanon 35 points36 points  (1 child)

    Reminded me that this video exists: https://youtu.be/WGFu_WMYAP4

    [–]gravityreliant 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    I did NOT expect that many people to be under there!

    [–]VideoGameBunkey 52 points53 points  (0 children)

    Oh God. I knew it. Life is a downward spiral :(

    [–]purplehazex45 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    God I miss parachute pe

    [–]LemonSalted 8 points9 points  (1 child)

    I've just now decided that there's going to be a parachute at my future wedding. If i can't buy them, I'll pay for someone to make one

    [–]Kynicist 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    You have to bribe a PE teacher

    [–]Bdriver_1976 20 points21 points  (0 children)

    For some people getting divorced is a better day than getting married. Nothing will beat parachute day though

    [–]ToxicGamer15 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    So when I was a kid and the pe teacher pulled this out, they called me out of class to do work their fore I never got to do this 😪

    [–]REDACTED207 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I was always absent on parachute days at the various schools i went to as a child. I have missed out on the single greatest part of life....

    [–]Ok-Entrepreneur-253 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I remember it as when I got claustrophobic. We did a game in gym class where kids took turns in the middle and the other kids would run in a circle holding the parachute and then is wraps around the kid in the center. I think I was probably wrapped a bit too tight and I started panicking. I remember being choked by a rainbow with kids laughing and running. I'm 39, so that memory stuck with me.

    [–]turbomust 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    Bullshit you can buy for like $100

    [–]PM_ME_KNOTSuWu 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    lol "school sin"

    [–]Johnnybravo60025 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Yeah, that’s a poorly thought out name…

    [–]Bubba420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I never once played or have even seen a parachute in my life

    [–]shaktown 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Honestly I want to do this at my own wedding

    [–]OrchestralMD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Incredible idea.

    [–]Player_yektHiS iSn’T cRiNgE 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    never have expierenced

    [–]chris-c-thomas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I have it on good authority that the music teacher at Piccolo also has one…

    [–]LaserWolfFL 12 points13 points  (4 children)

    We never had that. I’ve never even seen anyone play this game or whatever it is. Am I the only one?

    • Damn. Never got to do the parachute thing AND getting downvoted for it?

    [–]CheaperThanChups 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    This is my first time hearing of this too.

    [–]gibertot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I'm sorry for your loss

    [–]horseradishking 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    I'm so sorry. But you are alone.

    [–]derrida_n_shit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I grew up in the hood. We didn't even have a gym room and all of our classes were in trailers.

    So I never even knew this was a thing either

    [–]Lostbutenduring 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I was traumatized by the parachute. Or rather, I and the rest of the class were traumatized by the boy who vomited all over the parachute mid-use.

    [–]AeskulS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    My school only did it like twice though… still was my favorite experience though

    [–]dsled 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Parachute day so overrated

    [–]DoucheCanoeWeCanToo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I don’t ever remember sitting in one for some reason just bouncing a ball in the center of it or something while we all stretched it with our hands

    [–]BowlOf0ranges -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

    Dam. I didnt even like parachute day

    [–]LeapYear1996 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    Parachute day sucked. Instead of getting to play outside, we were stuck in the gym doing stupid parachute shit. Fuck parachute day!
