Recently, we took the kids to a Japanese restaurant, where they ordered a bowl of ramen. I was delighted when the waitress brought them some training chopsticks. As I studied the chopsticks, I realized it is super easy to make yourself! It took me a few tries to get the tension just right, but it WAS really easy. So the next time you go out to eat at an Asian restaurant, just take along a rubberband (or hair tie) and you are ready to make your own training chopsticks in just a few minutes!
I made you a short video so you can see exactly how it’s done:
After I published my video, I saw that a few others have made similar videos. You can watch them all to see which technique works best for you ;)
Please share with your friends who have children, or adults who have yet to master the art of using chopsticks!
P.S. Eating Japanese food with a fork is silly. Learn to use chopsticks! (past post about training chopsticks here)
