Here is an idea to keep the little ones busy and teach them hand eye coordination. If you save your slurpee straws it is great because they are so colorful, if not just grab a bag of straws at the local grocery store, cut the straws up into different lengths. Take a good length piece of yarn and tape one end so that it is easier to slip the straw on, and on the other end tie enough large knots so the straw pieces do not slip off. Now give the kids a bowl of colorful straws to make their own necklace. Another substitute for straws is Cereal (fruit loops, cheerios, etc.) Or you can use Lifesavers, or other candies with a whole in the center.
