The ‘2D Eiffel Tower’ String Figure comes from a popular sequence of figures consisting of ‘Cup and Saucer’, ‘Eiffel Tower’, ‘Witch’s Hat’ and ‘Sock on the Line’. A story ‘One Day in Paris’ can be told when making the sequence. A French translation of the story is provided as well as the names of the fingers in French so that the string game can be used in language lessons. Instructions for another fgure, the ‘3D Eiffel Tower’, are also given.

    This looks great fun - i'm going to try it out this week! (I may end up tied to my desk while the kids escape, but nothing ventured nothing gained!)
