A big bag of bright straws for a dollar fifty caught my eye the other day at HEB. First, we used them to make suncatchers (more on that later...the glue is still drying). But today, I decided to cut the straws to all different sizes and take out the playdoh.
The girls set to work seeing what they could create. Pushing the straws into the playdoh is a pleasing sensory experience, and the possibilities for fun art and play are pretty limitless.
I particularly like the lacy look of a sheet of pressed doh after you poke the circles out with a pen point (or something).
