Using a few ingredients from around the house you can turn your straw wrapper into a worm.
STEP 1: Using your fingers, completely scrunch the wrapper to the end of the straw.
STEP 2: Remove the scrunched up wrapper and place it on a flat surface.
STEP 3: Using the straw and your finger, slowly add a few drops of water to the scrunched up wrapper and observe.
Each time you added a drop of water, the paper absorbed the water, causing the scrunched up wrapper to look like it was moving on the flat surface.
