Chopsticks Challenge!

Here's a great little activity for you to try. It's very simple, cheap and easy to do!

You will need

  • Chopsticks (Prices range from 50p to £1.50 from your local take away)
  • Selection of small items from around the house. We used grapes, marshmallows, dried pasta and dice.
  • Bowls, plates or cups for your items.

Place a few of each of the items into the bowls, remembering to chop or peel fruit as required in case your little ones want to eat them!

Show your little one how to use the chopsticks and then let them have a go.


It is really that simple.Obviously, you can change the activity slightly. Maybe have all food or all non-food. Maybe have all Chinese food or just move the items from bowl to bowl and not eat them. What you use is completely up to you but if you're on a budget just use what you have!

We sat for at least half and hour moving things around with the chopsticks and trying to pick up the food. I was really impressed with how well Joseph sat and tried to use them. 

He even managed to pick up a marshmallow and put it in his mouth!


Give it a go and check out your little ones chopsticks skills. You might be impressed!
