If you’d like to expand on the creative part of this activity, feel free to make your own flowers! Just cut out pieces of paper in the shape of petals and let the kids color them. When they are done coloring, glue them to the spoons to make the flowers! The flowers are a fun way to get kids to want to use their spoons. The more creative you let them get, the more they will want to use them in the end!
Take advantage of the pictures included in the directions by letting your child see them and ask them what they think the next step would be to make their sundae match the picture. These are great for a mid-afternoon snack, and they are always popular in a classroom!
