So do my girls.
Sipping, slurping, sucking up that goodness you are drinking and it is so much fun. Who can resist.
Colourful, plain, dotty, big, little, loopy, straight, stretchy - there is no time when a straw is not something delightful to drink out of.
I love dressing up a drink or adding some playful fun with a straw. It's for adults or children, for anyone and I've never met a person yet who does not smile when they receive a cheerful straw.
My girls just love to drink their cup of tea out of a straw (I don't know why "tea") and they run eagerly to the straw draw to pick their so desired colour. It is so simple yet brings so much enjoyment. It also helps if they refuse to drink their water as I just pop in a straw and the ta da the water is gone.
1. To drink :) - Cute party fun, or adult cocktail sips, big old traditional milkshakes, water magic slurping up when you need your kids to hydrate, and more...
2. To decorate cupcakes with ie. flag poles, sign holders and more.
3. Art and Craft fun - from painting to gluing, shapes, pictures and creating creatures strange and wonderful.
4. Place a bunch in a cute glass jar and set in your kitchen to add some joyful, decorative colour.
Who invented them I do not know but thank you as straws = perfect cheer.
Do you love straws?
