How to do Cats Cradle

This is a two-person string game or string figure. There are three basic string shapes for Cats Cradle that are passed back and forth between two people. The object is to see how long you can keep it going without messing up.

Big thank you to my adorable daughter and her adorable friend for helping to produce this tutorial!
