I love eating, and eating with forks, knives, and spoons makes it so much easier than eating with your hands or with 2 sticks. But eating utensils aren't just for eating any more! If you have any extra plastic forks, knives, and spoons laying around the kitchen, I suggest you come up with some crafts ideas for them. And if you can't think of any ideas, then I suggest you look on this page and use some of these eating utensil crafts to make some really cool things. Happy Crafting!
It is super easy to make these wooden spoon flowers sitting in a flower bed. Just get a small lid or cardboard box. Turn it so it is open-side down. Cut some slits on the top. Color the top of the lid or box brown, the sides green. Color wooden spoons green too. Crumple up tissue paper and glue on the top of the spoons. Then stick all of the spoons in their little garden.
For this craft, you will need assorted sized wooden or heavy paper spoons and forks from 3" to 5" long, crayons or colored pencils, pipe cleaners, scraps of cloth and ribbon, yarn, colored paper napkins (preferably round ones), paper reinforcement stickers, small rubber bands, paste or glue, scissors, paper cake cups, cotton, and crepe paper or gift wrap. Various types of people and puppets can be made, according to the ability and ingenuity of the child. The simpler types should be made first. For the people, crayon faces on the back side of spoons as shown in sketches. Use sticker reinforcements to make ears for boys and men. Paste these on the "back" of the head so only part of the reinforcement will show from front. One pipe cleaner will make the arms and legs if you wish to add these. Cut a pipe cleaner in half, bend as shown in sketch. Glue to spoon. Make clothing from scraps of cloth, crepe paper, paper cake cups or gift wrap. Cut freehand and paste to the spoon. Hats and hair bows may be added. Also, hair can be made from yarn or tinted cotton. Figures may be placed in balls of clay or pasted on construction paper on which may be added background drawings.
