Popcorn Day

National Popcorn Day is January 19th, so for a December Activity Days, we talked about the history of popcorn. I had numerous facts that I found online, and I shared quite a few with the girls. We also talked about how popcorn pops - a mini science lesson! That part also had information on the different shapes that popcorn pops into and why! The girls had a really great time and for snack we had.... Popcorn!

Contact me if you would like the Popcorn Trivia I gathered from all over the web and the facts on how popcorn pops!

We didn't have time at this Activity, but you could also string popcorn or make popcorn pictures. There are quite a lot of books that can be checked out at a library as learning tools as well!

Let me know what your email address is and I will send you the word document that has all the trivia. If you are concerned about having your email address "out there", you can leave the message and I will delete it as soon as I write it down. :)

We're doing this activity this week and will start watching a 3 minute video from the above website on how popcorn is made, then we'll fill out our popcorn trivia, I'll teach the girls how to pop popcorn on the stovetop, then we'll pig out on popcorn and string popcorn for the girls to hang in the trees for the birds.
