Straw Necklaces

Standard

IMG_2149

Another beading activity, one that is very cheap and easy, but still plenty of fun. I took two packs of coloured drinking straws and cut them up into small lengths (no measurement required!). Then I gave each of the kids a piece of poly string, and let them thread the string through the cut up straw lengths, as if they were beads. After they filled the string with straws, I tied the ends together so that they could be worn as necklaces. They each made several of these necklaces, and we have plenty of straw pieces left over for another day.
