Every boy who played with toy soldiers knows that your army isn’t complete unless you have a few paratroopers. Getting your plastic army men to gracefully fall from a short distance softly on the ground is pretty simple. Cut a square of a plastic from a grocery or trash bag. Attach a piece of string to each corner of the plastic and then tie off the ends of the strings together. Remember to leave enough space for the plastic to catch air under it as it falls and leave a little string at the end to tie around your army man. When you’re ready, tie your plastic army man to your newly made toy parachute and drop him from from high enough so he floats down. Just remember it’s just a toy parachute. Don’t tie yourself or anything else that’s alive to it.
