This make is fun to make and allows your child to experiment with different colours and textures. The activity also helps your child to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they carefully paint the wooden spoon.
How to extend the magic
You could help your child make a whole family of spooky spoons. Try out some different colours - how about some silver ones using metallic paint? Make sure you paint a spooky expression on each face. Pick them up and bring them to life by having a little chat with them! If you like, you could have some more fun by playing a game of 'Spooky Spoon Sudoku'. (You just need to click through to the 'Play Games' section to find this game.)
