Introduction: Turn a Straw Wrapper Into a Moving "worm"

About: I play the banjo and the cello, and I fence. nuff said

This is a really cool trick I learned that's simple, easy to pull off, and looks pretty cool.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You really don't need a lot for this trick, just a straw with a wrapper, a cup of water, and a plate.

Step 2: Unwrap Your Straw

Unwrap the straw by scrunching the wrapper down the straw until it comes of the end. The tighter you can scrunch the straw the better.

Step 3: Now for the Trick

Alright, here's the trick- put the bunched up straw wrapper on a plate, then dip your straw in the glass of water, and put your finger on one end to create a suction. Then slowly drip the water from the straw onto the wrapper, and watch what happens!

    I always do this when I am at a restaurant! I love it!

    I'll try it next time when I'm in a restaurant, and the kids start fidgeting.
    Thanks for sharing!
