Straw weaving. This is fun. I did this with all my fifth grade classes this past school year. They loved it! Sucking the yarn through the straws got a lot of giggles! :) Easy project! "Over, under, over, under...go around & do the same thing again on the other side!" Tip: Don't get the straws that bend at the top! Good idea for basic preposition craft.
