These are always a hit when we make them. All you need is straws, pipe cleaners and some ribbon. It is a great fine motor skill and a simply, cheap imagination tool!
Gather your materials. Cut a few strands of ribbon (I let the kids choose and cut their own)
Wrap the pipe cleaner around the ribbon
let the kids push the pipe cleaner into the straw (even my 3's could do it with some perseverance)
and Abracadabra, Bibbity, Bobbity, Boo!
