Back in the days before the dawn of time, back before the days of Atari, and cable TV, we amused ourselves with simpler entertainment. Here my brother takes a step back in time and demonstrates how to create the ever-popular "cup and saucer" with a string. I, for my part, could remember the "rocket ship", the "parachute", the "chicken-foot" (which is the parachute turned upside down) and the most difficult of all - Jacob's Ladder. I was kind of amazed that I can still remember those things after 30+ years. Our kids didn't "get it" at all.
