Popcorn Party


Raise your hand if you love popcorn!
I would definitely raise two hands to that.  And both feet if I could.  We are popcorn lovers at our house.  We make our own by using simple ingredients-popcorn kernels and a brown paper bag.  Simply put 1/4 cup popcorn kernels in the brown paper bag and heat in the microwave.  I usually let ours pop for about one minute and 55 seconds.  We always add a bit of melted butter and salt to ours afterwards and it is delicious!  

One afternoon we had a popcorn party, Anna and I. 
We popped popcorn, read/talked about two books about corn, and talked about the different parts of an ear of corn.  Anna even decided to peel the ear of corn!  

Later we talked again about all we had learned while decorating a journal page with corn husk stickers and looking at Nana's corn stalks in her garden. 

A teachable, sweet little moment with my gal.

    1. Thanks friend! It was such an easy idea to pull together...just requiring a little thought beforehand. Anna really enjoyed it! :)
