We have been practicing these days on a lot of things. We've worked on blowing kisses, we've worked on finding our noses(including daddy & mommy's) and most of all, we've worked on using a spoon.
Its not an easy task for Drew right now, but he sure enjoys eating his favorite foods with the spoon. I figure save the the favorites for home, strip him out of his clothes and let him have at it to practice, practice, practice. He's getting better with holding his spoon, but still holds it on the tip of the handle. We try to show him to hold the middle of the handle, but its no good. He'll do what he wants and I don't want to fight too much with him.
But, he'll get it one of these days, but in the mean time, he can make a good mess. And, that's what toddlers do best!!
