Finger Strings A Book of Cat's Cradles and String Figures - Michael Taylor
Finger string games are a wonderful opportunity for today's children to practise meaningful movement, explore space, interact with others, and exercise their creative spirits. They're also great fun!
String games can be particularly useful with children who struggle at school, are dyslexic or who are learning concepts such as 'left and right', 'up and down'. The book contains games that will delight all children, from the very young to those with greater dexterity.
Michael Taylor has many years of experience in working with children and has shared his string figures at schools and camps throughout the world. This book contains over 80 inventive and imaginative string games and stories, all clearly illustrated with step-by-step colour diagrams. The book is particularly designed to require as little page-turning as possible in the middle of making a string shape!
Includes two brightly coloured strings to get you started.
