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!

Run five line of yarn through the straws, tie off one end. Tape straws together near the top. Then weave yarn in and out through the straw making a scarf that is woven. More straws make bigger things.

Quacking Duck-really quacks-Poke a small hole in the bottom of a plastic cup. Pull a piece of string, about 18 inches long, through the hole a bit so that the long end runs through the inside of the cup and the short end (maybe a half inch) pokes through the bottom. knot at topTo make the duck quack, run the sponge over the string, squeezing it not too firmly but not too gently..

It's a duck, by the way. Sure it just looks like a cup from a kegger with googly eyes attached. But this duck cup has a secret trick. It quacks.
