This is one of the easiest activities I have ever done!! It seriously took just a few minutes, I had the supplies on hand and Tyson was entertained all day! I originally got the idea from World Preschool Mom. If you have a few minutes today, go check out her sight. She is full of fun and innovative idea's. I will be doing more projects from her blog soon.
What you need is straws and some kind of string. We used shoelaces, it made this activity a little easier for smaller hands, because threading straws onto yarn is hard!! First I let Tyson cut the straws into pieces. Any size he wanted. He had fun because the straws would flip into the air and they were all over my kitchen.
