Popcorn for a Rainy Day!

What do you do on a rainy day, when your belongings have STILL not arrived??  

Make Popcorn!!

We made it the old fashioned way, on the stove, so Carter could see it in action!  
Using all of his 5 Senses!

You SEE it.
HEAR it.

Per my mom's tradition, you MUST listen to this song while making popcorn:

It's tradition!

Then you GLUE it!  

Do not be alarmed by my son's natural artistic ability. 
 We've been working on this masterpiece for a whole two days.  Dot Art first, then glue.  He found paperclips and is obsessed, that was his own thoughtful contribution.

Today??  Maybe we'll add some watercolor!

P.S.  Here is the recipe, just in case:
On the Stove Popcorn
1 Table Spoon of Oil
Enough kernels to make just 1 layer on the bottom of the pan.
Medium heat.

(Carter 19 months.)


  1. This is great! His artistic abilities are awesome!

  2. 1. I'm jealous of the rain.
    2. I must dig out my greg and steve cds.... why have I not found them already!
    and 3.... LOVE his masterpiece!! You need an art wall!

  3. Ha! You two are wayy too sweet! We had a fun time!

    Greg and Steve are the best!! Like "classic rock" for kids! I should have shown my mother's whole choreographed dance to this song, but I'm afraid the internet would have exploded.

  4. My kids won't eat popcorn but I might make it anyway so they can create some masterpieces like that one!

  5. What fun! I use an air popper at school and take the top off and let the popcorn fly! :) Thanks for linking up @ Link Your Mess!

  6. We love old fashioned way popcorn too - so much fun when it starts popping! Lovely to see you at the Play Academy.
