I remember weaving using straws and yarn in 3rd grade art class, like in this link: http://www.kid-at-art.com/htdoc/lesson9.html

That'll only use 4 straws, though  Tongue

I'm on the lookout for a big box of blue or green straws to make a 'beaded' curtain with!
However the only thing I can think of to do with your basic striped straw is to make Jello worms. I'll dig up the exact recipe if you message me, but essentially, you make a batch of Jello in the firmer manner, like to be cut with cookie cutters, using Grape Jello mix, and adding just a touch of milk to replace part of the water. Then cram as many straws as you can into a tall container, and pour the Jello into the straws. When set, remove the straw bundle from the tall container, run a little water over the straws to loosen up the Jello inside, and squeeze the worms out on waxed paper. Chill until ready to serve - great for kid's birthdays or Halloween!
