Chopsticks for Kids

Posted by JMom | Monday, January 19, 2009 | | 0 comments »

My girls could use chopsticks by they time they were old enough to feed themselves which was around 6 or 7 years old. Oh, I know it's nothing to brag about kids all over China are using chopsticks at a much younger age. But considering my kids only used chopsticks when we go to Chinese or Japanese restaurants, I think that was pretty good! That or we were going out to eat way too much. lol!

The girls actually became fascinated with using chopsticks after a kindly waiter made one for them that they can actually use. He made it by slipping a folded piece of paper between the two pieces of wood and creating a spring by tying it all down with a rubber band.

Now, they have these cute chopsticks for kids in varying designs and colors. My girls would have loved these when they were still learning how to use chopsticks.
