Emergency Yogurt Spoon (Functional Origami)
My brilliant husband, Gregg, can be clever.
My clever husband often offers me a “day of rest” by taking over the homemaker duties here. Once while at a military school, he didn’t have a spoon to eat his yogurt in his barracks room. Naturally, this did not stop him from fashioning his own spoon. When I witnessed this brilliance, I asked him to recreate it for my readers. Enjoy.
A Definition of Origami
Origami can be defined as the Japanese art of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures. I don’t think this yogurt spoon qualifies as origami since it is highly functional and not really beautiful like a swan or something. But whatever.
If you have yogurt with a foil lid but no spoon, you can make your own spoon, no problem. The only requirement I think I have is that the lid to your yogurt needs to be the sturdy foil type lid. This would not work with a flimsy thin plastic lid. I don’t really ever buy any kind of yogurt that doesn’t have the foil type lid so this isn’t a problem for me.
So, start with your favorite yogurt. I wouldn’t say Dannon greek yogurt is my favorite but it isn’t bad and doesn’t have any high-fructose so it will work for this demonstration.
Carefully remove the foil lid and smooth it out.
Make a fold of about a third and smooth it well.
Until you have a spoon.
Now enjoy your yogurt.
