A string of triumphs for young plaiters!

plait du jour Jordan Short (left) and Ophelia Donlon with their Scoobies SUPER Scoobie creators Ophelia Donlon and Jordan Short are the talk of their school.

The nimble-fingered misses are masters of the craze which has taken playgrounds by storm nationwide.

Ten-year-olds Ophelia and Jordan, who attend Wooldale Junior School, New Mill, have created dozens of the plaited and twisted designs.

The long plastic coloured Scoobie strings can be used to create all types of the art form.

And many shops are getting weekly supplies of colourful packs, such is the demand from children and adults.

They can be made into all manner of things including key chains, hair clips and all types of bird, animal and insect.

A variety of books helping people master the task are also on sale.

Ophelia's mum Di, who proudly sports a key fob full of Ophelia's creations said: "It certainly keeps them quiet. They can work on them for hours.

"Ophelia has created lots of different designs."

And for talented Jordan, Scoobie creations are just another `string' to her artistic bow.

She recently won a competition to design the programme cover for New Mill Gala.
