This simple toss and catch game is the first of the Indian toys we will make this week.
I found the directions from the Plimoth Plantation.
You will need:
some thin cotton string or jute twine about 15 inches long,
a (non-poisonous) flexible piece of vine about 12 inches long (we used willow branches)
and a straight, somewhat thin stick about 8 inches long.
Wrap the piece of vine to make a circle about 1 ½ or 2 inches in diameter. Wrap it several times, and then twist the free end around the circle to hold it in place.
Tie one end of the string to the stick, about 2 - 3 inches down from one end. Make sure the knot is tight.
Tie the other end of the string to the vine loop.
You’re done! Now give it a try.
