Sometimes all it takes is some new building pieces to spark a little creativity. All you need for this fun craft is straws (paper or plastic), pipe cleaners and scissors.

Start by cutting the straws into equal sizes. You could save up straws and reuse them instead of tossing them out right away.

Cut up some pipe cleaners into smaller segments and fold in half.

The great thing about pipe cleaners is that you can squish several of them in there to create 3d structures. Add to your building collection and try to make bigger and better structures each time!
