Looking for a simple and cheap ways to keep your kids busy?
Who would have though there are so many things to do with something as simple as straws?!
WHAT SUPPLIES DO I NEED TO MAKE DIY STRAW BEADS?
You don’t need much to make your own straw beads. Just some yarn and straws.
HOW DO I MAKE DIY STRAW BEADS?
- To make your straw beads, all you have to do is cut your straw into little half inch sections.
- The best part about this project is, the size of your straw beads can vary because you decide how long to make the beads!
- You can make your beads all one color with just a straw or two, or you can go all out and make them lots of colors. I really like the way they make her straw beads shiny here.
- In order to string your beads, just add a bit of tape to the end of the yarn so it doesn’t fray as you play with it.
This craft is great for preschoolers (supervised, of course), as well as older kids. So, that make it a wonderful craft ideas for times when you have multiple age groups working together.
Just make sure that they are old enough to understand that the beads cannot be eaten!
