We read Chopsticks by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Scott Magoon for the Virtual Book Club. The girls loved reading Chopsticks after having read Spoon.
What you need: yarn, pom poms, chopsticks of various kinds, pick up sticks, containers and plates.
We tried to use the chopsticks. They pulled them apart.
I showed them how you hold chopsticks.
They each tired to hold them.
Then they worked on using them. We tried pompoms first. Part of the way through I broke out the learner chopsticks for Mary.
Then we put yarn noodles on our plates and pretended to eat them.
We tried to play pick up sticks. It did not work very well so they practices dropping them. Each had their own set to play with.
Then they did their own pretend play with everything. It was lots of fun.
