Show and Tell Necklace

What can you do with extra straws? Make a necklace.


Make necklaces by cutting the straws into pieces and string them on yarn. If you wrap tape around one end of the yarn, the stringing will be easier.

Parent TipsThis activity requires careful threading, so it takes controlled finger movements. That's the kind of control your child will need for being able to use a pencil for writing or a crayon for drawing You're also giving your child that good feeling of being able to control his or her hands and fingers -- something important for developing control at angry times so your child won't hit or hurt someone.
