How to Devil Stick
Devil stick manipulation is a form of gyroscopic juggling, or equilibristics and is generally considered to be one of the 'circus arts'. The name, "Devil Stick" most likely comes from a confusion of 'diabolo' (to toss across) with 'diablo', or devil. Sometimes called "devil-sticking" other terms often used are: "twirling", "sticking" and "stick juggling".
Ancient Egyptian tomb paintings show people juggling. Juggling develops hand-eye coordination and keeps the kids amused for hours. Give it a try!
