Using Chopsticks

Depending on the girls in your unit, some of them may already be proficient with chopsticks.  If so, engage them helping their friends and they will likely enjoy the treats no mater what. If you don’t use chopsticks regularly yourself, you may want to practice before the meeting.

Materials:

  • a pair of disposable chopsticks for each girl
  • napkins or paper plates
  • practice foods

Activity:

Demonstrate basic chopstick uses.  Then allow the girls to practice with a series of increasingly tricky food.  Instead of practicing with traditional Asian foods, try foods like cheezies (easy), gummy bears (intermediate) and jelly beans (hard).  If you want to you can move on to foods more typically eaten with chopsticks like sushi or dim sun.
