Strawberries and Chopsticks

Emily has been enjoying all of the strawberries that we picked this weekend.
Her favorite way to eat them...

...is with her new pink chopsticks!

I picked these Animal Training Chopsticks
up at the gift shop of our local children's museum. I figured we could use them to work on some fine motor skills like picking up pom-poms. But once we tried them on food she now asks for them all the time. It is so cute to watch her eat with them. I think I am going to pick up a few more the next time we are at the museum!!

Neat idea. I should ask my Asian coworkers for training chopsticks that they use with their kids :)

That really would be great fine motor skill practice for any little one's hands! It looks like she is really doing well with those training chopsticks! Good idea!

I love that they are animals! Want to hear something funny? When I was in China I asked them if they made small chopsticks for children and they said no, they just have their kids use forks!

I saw those chopsticks on the Let's Explore site. I think I may have to purchase them - too cute!

Hi Michelle

How gorgeous is that! Emily is such a clever little girl.

You had so many fun and great ideas in your TOTSschool post. That velcro pizza set is cute. At the moment we are into all sorts of play foods - especially felt ones.
