Ok, I have to admit that I was a little nervous about this activity. I have not introduced the boys to needles yet. I am happy to say that this activity was a HUGE success and I never should have doubted my boys.
popped popcorn *see below
*We used air popped popcorn so that there was no greasy mess. I bought a bag of corn kernels and make them in a paper bag in the microwave. Put 1/4 cup of kernels in a paper bag. Fold over the top of the bag two times. Put in the microwave for approximately 1 minute 30 seconds or until popping slows to 2-3 seconds between pops.
Thread your needle and put a knot in the end of you sting. Then start stringing. Easy peasy!
This was a huge hit for Thing 2. I think he spent over an hour sitting at the table stringing popcorn.
We now how a couple of popcorn strings hanging on our Christmas tree.
Do you have any crafts that you have done with popcorn?
