Strings to play with, multicultural activities that use them, and a complete package wrapping it all up: this all-in-one kid's kit will provide hours of enrichment and entertainment. Inside the sturdy hardcover volume, with its concealed spiral binding, is a bound-in, resealable box containing three bright strings in different sizes and colors. Choose one, then turn the pages, and begin the fun! Pick a favorite trick or game, and follow the simple instructions and photo illustrations. Children can improve their hand-eye coordination as they enjoy creating patterns from basic to flashy to 3D; the huge variety goes from beginner right up to very tricky and elaborate. Invite a friend for two-handed games that double the fun. Many of the games come from different ethnic and national groups, so along with the basics of play, there are fun lessons that enhance cultural awareness and fascinating tales of the tribal origin of figures like "Walking Sticks of Old Woman" and "Pillars of the Sun." Whether captivating friends or entertaining the family, developing skills will build confidence, inspire imagination, and initiate youngsters into the long and proud tradition of string games.

Also available in a jacketed hardcover without the strings!
