Today’s super easy kid made ornament is inspired by Bear Stays Up for Christmas book!
We have the kindle version because this mamma can’t wait 3 weeks for international postage so she can read Christmas stories! If you too want a quick list of Christmas Kindle books perfect for kids check out this awesome list!
Anyways, so while reading there is a section where they decorate the tree by stringing popcorn. Now you need to understand that my kids LOVE popcorn. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
So as part of the 10 DAYS OF A KID-MADE CHRISTMAS Ornaments series we decided to use popcorn!
Instead of stringing popcorn in a long line, cause that would involve a needle, ouch. I cut out a few circles.
We added some glue, popcorn and a ribbon.
Added bonus points if you can make popcorn on a stove top like in the book! POP POP POP!
TIP: Remember that popcorn shrinks when it has been out in the air a bit. so to avoid a shrived up popcorn ring, let the popcorn stand a for an hour or so. That is if the kids don’t eat it all by the time you want to craft!!
