However one frustration I clearly recall from our excursions was not sharing my parents’ masterful skills using chopsticks. For little fingers, it’s awfully hard to get a good grip with two skinny sticks, let alone scoop up a pile of slippery lo mein. Luckily, we’ve found an answer to help simplify things.
These Safari Stix chopsticks holders from the family-centric cooking shop Cook in Color are bound to make your next Asian culinary adventure even more fun. Just pop your sticks in the rubber holders and they’ll do the hard work of keeping them in place so your kids can concentrate on trying to pick up that one stubborn grain of rice. Plus: they are pretty darn cute. Pick either a pink giraffe or a yellow elephant. At $3.49 a piece, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep some at home, too, to make take-out nights more entertaining as well.
