Summer Activity for Kids: Make Cool 3-D Straw Structures

School is out in just a few days for a lot of us, so I have been thinking hard and trying to collect some ideas for activities to keep my little guy busy while he isn’t in school this summer. These straw structures are perfect. We all have straws lying around the house, right? So why not put them to some good use and make some fun sculptures out of them? You could have the kids practice their letters, numbers, or shapes! Or for older kids, just let them go crazy creating some awesome three dimensional sculpture he will surely keep for a long time to come. I love that they are made from plastic straws since they are so inexpensive and so easy to come by even if you do run out. Also, if you are a really awesome parent, you can take them to the store with you to buy some straws of their choice. I know my son would love some green ones, so I might have to make a special trip to get some. I can see a little one having hours of imaginative fun with these. Just connect the ends together and bend to make the straws curve to make the shapes you want! So easy and so much fun. You can see the full details and tutorial over here on Handmade Charlotte. Happy building!
