Looking for a fun activity that will get your kids (and you) all wound up?

String treasure hunt - discover how to turn a ball of yarn into an afternoon of tangled family entertainment (obstacle course, laser maze and all fun).

Why Surprise Them With a Stringing?

Picture this: You arrive home from school or work or practice or wherever you’ve been, open your front door and find that your house is full of string. It zigzags everywhere: upstairs, downstairs, over doors and under furniture. Every room is a maze of multicolored web.

And then you’re handed one end of the string and told that if you follow it in all its twists and turns, you’ll find a prize.

Sounds pretty cool, huh? THAT is a stringing and your kids will love it!

You’ll love it too, because it’s just as much fun to set up the string as it is to follow it to the end. Your prize will be the looks of surprise and glee you’ll see on their faces.
