How we did it:

Materials List

  1. drinking straws (2, of different diameter)
  2. clay
  3. scissors
  1. Size doesn't matter, as long as one straw fits inside the other.

  2. Maddie cut the smaller straw into four pieces.

  3. Then she took a chunk of clay, and softened and flattened it to a thickness of a half-inch or so.

  4. She poked the cut straws into the clay.

  5. That's all there is to it! Now.... One.

  6. Two....

  7. Three!!

  8. Try cutting them different lengths, and with different amounts of clay in them! Want to make a target? What happens if you put in several at a time?!?
