We have this popcorn popper that we love. They enjoyed watching it pop at my moms, so we were excited to find one for super cheap at Lowe’s.
And popcorn is just always such fun! We had popcorn parties every night!
And speaking of my mom…She fixes the best caramel popcorn anywhere! So we attempted it and it actually turned out to be delicious. Almost, but not quite like hers. Let me know if you want the recipe. Super yummy!!!
We learned about the “corn belt” states. Since we are in one of them, that was fun! We bought some semi-locally grown popcorn in fun colors…Ruby Red and Sunburst Red.
I put together a popcorn sensory bin for the boys. They got a ton of fun out that one. I cleaned up a lot of kernels, but it was it worth it! They enjoyed passing the corn through funnels,pretending to pop it, and transferring into containers.
One of Andrew’s favorite activities was the graph he made from surveying people about what their favorite way to eat popcorn is. He called grandmas and grandpas and asked a few friends.
The acrostic poem he wrote was so darling. It read:
P opcorn is so yummy.
O h so yummy.
P opcorn is in my tummy.
C orn is where it comes from.
O n farms it grows.
R ight from the plant God made it.
N ever burn your popcorn!
The boys painted a picture of popcorn using popped popcorn as their stamp!
I had fun drawing on our chalkboard!
There were so many fun video links that my boys loved watching. Anything that has to do with farming is right up their alley!
And we couldn’t leave out the birds. As suggested in the unit study, we made a popcorn ball covered with seeds for the birds to enjoy!
And the best part?! I get to give away one of these downloadable unit studies for you to do! To enter, leave me a comment about a popcorn memory you have. But hurry! I will be drawing a name next Tuesday, March 8th!
