String Games Book with Three Rainbow-Hued Cord Loops



Sorry, this product is currently not available.

Cat's Cradle, Crow's Foot, Jacob's Ladder - we remember well the happy hours spent playing string games handed down to us by our mothers and grandmothers. Thankfully, Richard Darsie's careful, step-by-step instructions and photographs will help us teach our children. Three rainbow-hued cord loops that are much easier to work with than the yarn we used as kids are also included.

A special kind of heirloom for ages 8 and up.

Hardcover, 8" x 8", 95 pages

My grandsons are loving the challenge of learning how to do all of the configurations shown in the book. Keeps all of them busy.

Because this is a gift for a 10 year old girl, I haven't seen it in action yet. But I like the format, the illustrations and the clear instructions. I think she will enjoy it!


Great Gift

I purchased 1 for a gift & then 3 more. This has been a great gift & my husband has had fun with it too. It's a good thing the book comes with the colored strings, because the memory isn't what it used to be.


Hooray!! Great Activity

I bought this for my 12 year old daughter's birthday. She hasn't put it down! She takes it on car trips, to friends' houses and to Grandma's. It brought back a lot of memories for me as well! The book is easy to follow with step by step directions and photos that explain what to do. I would recommend it for children over the age of 10, if wanting it to be done independently. With help, children over the age of 8 would also be successful.
