Jessica at Boy Terrain comes to us as a perfect fit for our “Activities Series.” As a mother of two (very busy) young boys, she seems to be an expert at activities. She even created her blog to focus solely on things that pertain to children (particularly boys) in hopes to create a community of ideas for other moms of boys. “Enjoy your little manly men!”
I couldn’t like these quirky spoon people any more!
They were so much fun to make with Judah (age 3) and somewhat of a pain to make with Wesley (1.5) but we did have a fun time sitting around the table together even if Wesley kept stealing all the googly eyes.
These really are easy and inexpensive to make and I would recommend it for age 3 and up – obviously the older the child the less hands on the parent has to be.
- Googly eyes
- Permanent marker
- Sea shells
These spoon people are rather easy going and would be grateful to be dressed in whatever you have laying around your home.
I started out by drawing faces on the front side of the spoon – Judah didn’t want to draw his own and Wesley lacks certain coordination skills to draw his own.
Wesley wanted two different size eyes on his person and Judah wanted his frowning.
(I actually didn’t glue the eyes on until the end as it made it easier to work with the spoons without worrying about drying glue!)
Welcome to our lives spoon people! I will do all that is in my power to ensure you are never eaten off of.
