4 eggs (medium)
1 2/3 cups flour
3/8 cups cornstarch
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sliced hazelnuts

my little zoo spoons



Yesterday I took my nephew Noel to the zoo. He was so fascinated by all the animals. 
After hours of zebras, gorillas and elephants I had a lot of problems to get him back home. 
So I promised him his own little zoo.

For your own little zoo you need:

  • wooden spoons
  • glue
  • paint
  • plastic animals 




  • paint wooden spoons with your favorite color and let dry






































  • cut animals with a carpet knife into half and glue onto wooden spoons

































Voila;-)












































































This little zoo is a nice decoration idea.
If you don´t paint the spoons you can use them as cupcake toppers for your next party:-)
Your gonna love them:-)

Have fun...sabrinasue
