Finger Strings - A Book of Cats Cradles
Finger Strings is a brand new collection of finger string games which contains old favorites, as well new and original games that will delight older children and adults, and keep fingers busy for hours.
Finger string games are a wonderful way for children to build their fine motor skills, visualize geometry, and engage their creativity. They exercise the hands and the brain, but are also great fun!
Finger Strings contains more than 80 imaginative games and stories, illustrated with more than 600 clear, step-by-step color illustrations.
With a ringbound spine, this book is designed to lie flat, to minimize page-turning while creating your string shapes.
