Cats cradle
Perfect for kids, as a birthday gift or stocking stuffer, teach them how to do cats cradle in a really simple illustrated way. This game has been around since at least the early 1800’s on record. However as its such a simple game, it would have been played since string was first around I imagine! The game consists of generally two or more people, however can be only a single person as well. The aim of the game, is to create pictures using only a method of knotting string between your fingers. Get Cat’s Cradle Book Kit- by Klutz on Amazon today!
