“Spoon” by Amy Krause Rosenthal was such a fun book we discovered at the local library! We enjoyed reading it together – everyone was laughing – but it also led to some fun exploratory play.

Exploratory Play Supplies for this Spoon Activity

– Shallow container – Water – A variety of different spoons

Small little containers can also be a fun addition to water play.

Scooping and pouring with the different spoons (and containers) is not only a fun addition to your read-aloud time with this book, but it is also great for strengthening fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, etc.

A fun extension of this activity to compare the possibilities of the spoons with what it looks like to try to scoop and pour with a fork…or a knife.

I guarantee you will have your kiddos laughing as they try this! It’s impossible!
