What fun I am having teaching the children string games. It first started while sitting in the back of the Motorhome touring round England, trying to keep Mollie amused. As we always have a ball of yarn close by, I cut a piece tied it in a circle and taught her Witches Broom.
Now two years later, we have searched the internet, Mama has dug deep in my memory to remember more and now we have 6 string figures - Witches broom, cats whiskers, bridge, hand trap, cup and saucer and the wink.
I think all children should enjoy learning this game not only it is excellent for their hand eye coordination and fine motor skills but it is just basic good FUN!
Edit to add: our favourite website is here and we have just added 'the moth' to our repetoire!
