Drinking straw loom, a project I learned in girl scouts. The result is a strip of woven fabric, perfect for use as a belt or scarf. You can vary the width of the finished piece by changing the number of straws; more straws yields a wider strip.
Beaded Safety Pin Bracelets- this would be a good Stuart & project! We can drink wine & make jewelry, LOL! All you need is some elastic, safety pins, and beads (try not to go too big on beads, smaller ones tend to work better for this).
