Cat’s Cradle String Game

Have some fun with your children playing this brain teaser game. The game consists of 2 players and a sequence of string figures. One player removes the string figure from the hands of the previous player, using a simple motion and tightens the loop to create another figure eg. Diamonds can lead to Candles, then to Manger (which is an inverted Cat’s Cradle) OR Fish in a dish can become Cat’s Eye or Manger. Use the internet to research various other string figures. The game ends when a player makes a mistake or creates a dead-end figure, which cannot be turned into anything else. This game can also be played solo. Great for long car trips. Enjoy!!
