Busy Bag: Pipe Cleaners and Straws

This is another fun, affordable and easy to make activity that I made using supplies from the dollar store.  I took three separate colored pipe cleaners and rolled one end into a circle.  The pipe cleaner then sort of resembles a musical note.  Then I took some colored straws and cut them into 5 pieces each.  Toddler Veg has had a challenging time stringing these smaller pieced straws.  He's been practicing stringing jumbo beads so this size change was quite significant :)

If you are making for a busy bag swap, each participant should get:
3 pipe cleaners, shaped into musical notes
several straw pieces  to string
all items should be placed into a quart of gallon size baggie
