Target practice: Parachutes

'Target practice: Parachutes' workshop
Make a parachute, take aim and drop it. Can you hit the target? Suitable for ages 5 and over.

Abram Games designed a number of posters to educate new soldiers and tell them how to be careful with their weapons. It was important to keep weapons clean to ensure they worked well and could fire accurately.

How well can your parachute fly? Test your accuracy and beat your friends in this target practice workshop!
