Flow Circus brings DIY skill toys to the world with Fundama Answered
Flow Circus is a group of jugglers and skill toy artists dedicated to promoting creativity and play among kids and adults.
Based on the Kendama and other ball, stick, and cup games from cultures around the world, they have created what they call "Fundama". From the site:
Fundama: 1. Easy-to-make toy using basic elements such as string, tape, cups, and sticks that provide hours of challenging play; 2. From the Latin fundus: the bottom or basis for engaging programs for children, tweens, & teens
Brief History: ...We know that budgets are tight and programmers are always looking for ideas that can be done on a shoe-string budget. We love encouraging skill-based play so we sat down with paper cups, string, tape, sticks and Fundama was born!
There are videos and instructions all over the site telling how to create your own Fundama using sticks, strings, cups, and tape. Great DIY and wonderful for parents and kids to do together at home, church, library, and school.
