Pumpkin Wheels & Pawpaw Flutes
The Games of Malawi

The observation of Pumpkin Wheels and Pawpaw Flutes at Mua School for Deaf Children (Dedza District) has led to a substantial collection of children's games and entertainments from Malawi: marionettes and string figures (cat's cradles) not least.

 

Miss Alisoun Probert introduces The Games of Malawi with two articles (2018 and 2010).
