10 pipers piping
We cut some drinking straws down to a reasonable size.
We got out some glitter and within 0.5 seconds, Juliet had it EVERYWHERE! It was on the table, on her shirt, in her hair....we're still cleaning it out.
After getting the glitter somewhat under control, she rolled the straws in glue first, and then followed by rolling the sticky straw in the glitter.
