Parachuting Doll

As an older brother, I spent a lot of my time trying to annoy my little sister. One of the most effective ways that I discovered was to parachute her dolls from the second floor.

Today I'll teach you how to parachute a doll with everyday household items.

**You can build a parachuting doll just for fun and not solely to annoy your sister.


Doll (go wild, preferably not a porcelain doll those tend to break even with a decent parachute)

String X2

Small plastic bag

    I bet if you used a big lawn/leaf trash bag, that doll would drift a bit more slowly :) Hopefully your sister isn't too mad :P
