Using Chopsticks

Incorporating some fine motor work into our meals, we use training chopsticks from (Fred Party People Chopsticks, set of 6) for some food at the table. There are other kinds of training chopsticks available but this colorful set looked like the simplest to use and easiest to clean.

We started with green beans.

Matthew picked up and transferred green beans from the serving plate to his using the training chopsticks. Then he ate them with his fork. Not wanting to be left out, Elizabeth got her own pair of chopsticks too. She used chopsticks, fingers and a fork.

We've been using ice tongs for Matthew to serve himself salad from the salad bowl. He really enjoys being able to do it himself.
