How much fun can you have with wooden spoons?!

Well, Karen Carpenter may have warbled that rainy days and Sundays always got her down, but she obviously didn't have a Betta Living Kids in the Kitchen box to dip into ! When we woke up to a grey, drizzly day, that's where we headed for inspiration and came up with ... a bunch of wooden spoons !

I showed the picture to the Madhouse Mini-testers for inspiration and gave them free reign to get creative.

Well, I think Pierre was going for a close up of a gorilla's armpit ! He was very proud of all the jungle stickers he'd found to stick on the handle though !

Front and back no less !

Meanwhile, Sophie proved that she's totally mad about One Direction (or quite possibly just totally mad !) and made one that was supposed to represent ...

... Harry Styles ! Harry Stirs would be more like it !

I threw some funky pipecleaners into the mix and ... ahem ... Sophie decided to give her glasses a makeover . Nice look, Sophie !!

And Pierre added arms (maybe?!) to his crazy spoon. He was so proud of it and made me take a photo for the blog !!

Juliette gets the prize for the most human-looking spoon though.

He even has arms and legs so she made him dance all over the table !

If you don't have a well-stocked craft cupboard, I would strongly recommend buying up some packs of random bits and bobs - the kids had great fun discovering the (ahem) furry balls, pipe cleaners and jungle stickers in this pack and it took their imaginations to places I would never have dreamed of !

There was another activity idea for the wooden spoons in the box but that involved banging saucepans with them as a drumset so I decided to give that one a miss for now - the kids are noisy enough as it is !

To find out more about the other activities, designed by Betta Living to help you have fun on a budget during the holidays, check out my blogpost about the Kids In The Kitchen campaign here.
