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!
Weave the yarn over and under the straws. Keep the weaving as tight as possible. As the straws become wrapped in yarn, slide the straws down to re-expose them. Continue weaving until your piece reaches the desired length.
