In this week’s video, I discuss the benefits of string games such as Cat’s Cradle for children’s learning, and why a simple finger string is my favorite stocking stuffer or party favor for children 5 and up.
Did you play Cat’s Cradle or other string games as a child? Does your child play? What are your favorite string games?
I am often asked by parents who are waiting to transform their child’s playthings from commercial plastic toys to more natural Waldorf toys for my recommendations of the most essential Waldorf toys. This week on “Sunday with Sarah” I share five of my top picks and discuss the play value of each.
Keep in mind that if you are limited by budget some of these toys can be handmade or built oneself!
