How many times has this happened to you?
Your family sits down at your favorite kid-friendly restaurant and the server hands out those wonderful kid-sized cups with lids (praise be to lids!). Then they hand out the straws, which are the same straws they use for adult-sized cups. Your kids, and their age-appropriate depth perception, then have to try to navigate those way-too-long straws into their thirsty little mouths. Not ideal.
Since I’m not in the habit of carrying scissors in my purse, here’s how we’ve solved this little problem. It’s a game changer!
