String Games

Arvind Gupta (Author)
Synopsis String Games provides step-by-step instructions with illustrations for making diverse and interesting string figures. The fun-filled figures created by using strings of all sorts not only augment memory and imagination of young children but also enrich their eye-hand co-ordination. String games are great fun. They exercise your memory and your imagination. They are great for hand and eye coordination. So learn these string figures and share them with your friends. They probably will show you some new ones. If you keep experimenting, who knows you might invent some wonderful string figures of your own. This is probably how most of the 750 documented string games were invented. String is used for a number of things - from tying parcels to making bags and nets. Everyone needs string or something to tie with. This something is different in different parts of the world. The Eskimo uses thin strips of sealskin to lash together his sledges or to fasten an axe-head to its shaft. Vegetable fibers are a very common form of string among natives - we ourselves use raffia in a number of ways. Sutli is very commonly used in India for tying things together. Some native Australians use human hair - the women grow it for their men folk to use - while others use the great sinews from the Kangaroo's legs.
