Popcorn Popping on the........

One of Our favorite Primary Hyms is: "I looked out the window" it goes like this:
I looked out the window and what did I see, Popcorn popping on the Apricot Tree. Spring has brought me such a nice suprise Blossoms popping right before my eyes. I can take an arm full and make a treat, a popcorn ball that would smell so sweet, it wasnt really so, but it seemend to be, Popcorn popping on the Apricot Tree.

We have been siging this song alot in our home the past couple of weeks. As well as when we are in town and we spot all the Tree's that are in bloom. Our girls love the trees that have the pink blooms, and they always say Yum.....Look at that Pink Popcorn.

So , here is a Fun project I did with them:

1. Get the Air Popcorn popper out! My oldest daughter, Doodle said " Oh mom can we pop the Popcorn with the popcorn machine, instead of doing it in the microwave" I loved how excited they got while watching the corn pop! Of course they had to have their dress ups on !

2. I traced their Hand and arm on colored paper, then I glued it onto heavy cardstock and added green paper by using the ripping method, so it would look like grass. Get your Elemers washable school glue out and add dots of glue anywhere you would like on your tree branches! 
3. Enjoy and display your own "PopCorn Popping"
Doodles is the one on the far right, I loved how she just wanted to add one kernel to each one of the fingers. Bugs is in the middle and she wanted to add it all over. Mine is on the far left and I had lots of help from Bugs and she wanted to add one to the Trunk of my tree!

  1. I love these handprint trees!! Such a great idea using the popcorn! We had air popper when I was growing up - really fun memories of hovering around waiting for the magic moment when the first few kernels popped. Thanks for sharing :)
