I had some yarn and lots of straws and with some help from the internet I got the idea of Straws on String. I tied a crochet needle on one end to help make stringing the straws a bit easier. My four year old upgraded to beads, but my two year old is having a blast with this keep-busy activity.
It helps hand-eye coordination and creativity. And as an added bonus they aren’t fighting with each other! Yay me lol.
