This idea is from another blog post (CLICK HERE to see) where the family went to a museum here they saw a sculpture titled "Fireworks of Glass". The mother realized a similar type of look could be gotten using clay and crazy straws so a fun craft was born.
We actually did this a bit ago, but I am just getting around to uploading the images. This was done a couple days before Tristian's bday, I think. The boys and a good friend had a blast doing this =)
The play doh provided, literally, hours of play taking the colorful straws and picks out and rearranging them and the finished products looked pretty neat!
