Ok, this may look like very silly post to you, and maybe it is, but I had to share it with you: my selfmade spoon which brought back so many sweet childhood memories. 

We´re on our holidays in Croatia and Montenegro right now and a couple of days ago we bought a yoghurt but didn´t have a spoon. But my son really wanted to have the yoghurt and while my husband had already told him to try to drink the yoghurt (which wasn´s really possible, though) I remembered an old trick from my childhood: When me and my cousin were outside on the playground and we had a yoghurt my mother and my aunt usually didn´t have a spoon with them. They were, like me, not one of those super well organized moms with emergency kits in their purses. But they were creative and showed us how to make a spoon out of the top of the yoghurt cup. It´s very easy and, as you can see on the picture, it works! Not recommended for everyday use, but it´s a great emergency case-solution!
