Wooden Spoon Crafts

We love crafting with wooden spoons! Just give the children some paint and a few crafty bits and pieces and find some inspiration below, and before you know it they will have a whole host of wooden spoon puppets and other creations to show off to friends and family. You can often buy wooden spoons very cheaply in bulk at kitchen suppliers, craft stores or pound stores (dollar stores) so stock up when you see them!
