SCOOPER - Making one
To make a scooper: Use a small pole, the one in the picture is a pencil, using plastic packing tape which you do not have to buy, as parcels usually come tied up with it, keep a length. Bend it to the size and shape you want, leaving enough at each end so it can be attached on the opposite sides, at one end of the pole. Then bind it, round and round, with electrical insulation tap, very tightly until the part the tape touching the pencil is covered. You can make them to the shape and size you need.
