Lots of Drinking straws

My mom threw away a bag of drinking straws (about 200-300 left) , they are wraped in paper, any ideas on what to do with them for a new Instructable or something. PS: took the picture last year and had nothing to do with it

You can sell them to other people dear. Then you can also use them for table decoration in birthday parties, wedding, events, functions etc.

I was thinking about some sort of wind turbine or other powered device. I have about 50 bendy straws. They are kinda a use one and throw away thing, so I have a steady supply coming in. Arranged in a pinwheel so that one is always into the wind like a paddleboat wheel? Just off the top of my head. Not sue what to do with the air when it gets to the center... Maybe glue them to a paper plate and sandwich a bunch on a central pole. Thinking about stuffing them into the end of a pipe splayed out in all directions see what comes out the other end. With water you might try a variation of a drip irrigator? Just my 2 cents and 30 seconds.

You could try taping them all together, and seeing how faraway from the can you can drink a can of Cola from.
I would use water , it could be messy! :D

Build stuff.

Bridges, towers, cranes, figures.

Make several hundred small kites.

Try recreating a Jansen Strandbeest in miniature:

Basically, be creative

. What is the motive force for this thing? Are those windmills on the ends?
