Coffee stirrers make good juice box straws

Why do the juice box straws always end up at the bottom of the bag? Winnie's solution:

I had a ton of coffee stirrers left over from a party and figured I'd just use them for craft projects. However, I've found that hollow coffee stirrers make a great straw for kids. From toting juice boxes in my bag, I often lose the straw. Coffee stirrers are just the right size straw for the small juice boxes. We also use them for the drinkable yogurt.

THANK you for this one -- we lose the straws all the time (may have something to do with a toddler who loves to pull things apart) and I'm always scrambling to find them. I will definitely use this one.

This is great! I didn't give it much thought at first, but my son's juice box the other day came without a straw and I didn't realize it until we were in the car and away from home. I've now got some stir sticks in my purse!
