8 Uses for Chopsticks…

…besides eating and serving food. Please only try these if you are already skilled with the chopsticks, and have had a lot of practice (except the first one, you don’t need skill/practice using chopsticks for steaming, as you’re laying them down to cook on them, which may require some very basic pre-k building skills).
