When I was young, we used to play a game with string called 'Cat's Cradle'. It was great fun and I found a link on wikihow to show different ways to play this.
It is fun to make patterns with my hands, to let others in to hold them close. Yeah, sometimes I mess up the pattern and I have to start over. Usually, though, someone else can sense what is happening in the threads and pop in to fix it.
I have always liked this game. It is a game of working together. One person can't do it alone--ok, you kind of can, but it is NOT easy and it fails rather quickly. Kind of like life. You cannot do things on your own. You really need help for one thing or another. You need to let others in to allow them to help. To rescue you when the patterns get muddled.
