Idea stolen liberally from this British blog. (I love the word “beetroot”!)
I may actually do this – I mean, how cheap are these wooden spoons???
They wouldn’t last forever, but they’re way better than popsicle sticks or the multicoloured plastic markers I bought last year. The dark colours (red, blue) were so hard to write on visibly!
Plus, I like the idea of tossing the markers in the compost bin when they wear out. I’m sick of finding little white tags everywhere I look.
Naomi does love them, though. She collects them and feeds them to her cow - or something. There’s a whole pile of them right now in the “trunk” of her little toy car. More souvenirs… she’s always picking up souvenirs…
