20+ Simple Straw Crafts

With summer in full swing, I want to have plenty of activities for me and the kids to do together! I also don’t want to break the bank buying supplies, so why not do some projects that use common stuff? I have a severe problem with collecting cute paper straws….all sorts of colors, designs and patterns. Even if I just need like 1 or 2, I buy the pack then hold on to everything else. It’s pretty nuts! I decided that if I wanted an easy craft idea, I should find something that utilizes some of my straws horde. Check out these 20+ Simple Straw Crafts for ideas for YOUR summer fun!

I wanted to include an assortment of neat kid’s crafts, as well as some us mama’s would enjoy doing like hanging ornaments or things for parties! Some of these I plan to switch up a bit for a 4th of July theme party or something – gotta love flexibility, right?!
