Description


Learn the Cat’s Cradle, one of history’s most popular children’s games, with this easy-to-follow activity book perfect for unplugged fun at home, on the road, family game night, or wherever you go.

Though we don’t know which culture began playing string games — or when — we do know that the Cat’s Cradle probably began in primitive times. Cat’s Cradle was first acknowledged in the 1700s and, since 1888, over 2,000 patterns have been recorded.

The Cat's Cradle: And 8 Other Fantastic String Games features:

- One extra-long continuous cat’s cradle string, perfect for up to four players
- Eight classic string games like Cat’s Cradle and Hand Catch, as well as string figures such as Witch’s Broom, Parachute, Jacobs Ladder, and more
- Easy-to-follow instructions and pictures for every trick, twist, and tie, you’ll be a string wizard in no time

This timeless childhood game provides:

- Hours of fun entertainment for children ages 6-10 and nostalgia for the young at heart
- A great boredom buster, fidget trick, or object for restless hands
- Perfect gift for birthdays or holidays, stocking stuffer at Christmas, or basket filler for Easter
