Tracing Kitchen Utensils

How To Do It

  • Supplies: Paper, pens, markers, three kitchen utensils with interesting shapes but not too complex.
  • Trace one utensil at a time, overlapping shapes, until the paper is full with shapes.
  • Use the thicker marker to select certain shapes to fill in with lines, dots, or solid color.
  • Share your finished work with each other.


  1. Did you enjoy the process? What about the result? Would you like to try again with other utensils? Using colors, perhaps?
  2. What is your favorite dish to cook or bake? What about your favorite meal to eat?
  3. Who do you normally cook with or for? 
  4. How did you learn to cook?
  5. What are some family traditions or customs involving food in your family? 
  6. Tell each other a story related to cooking or baking.
