Popcorn Art

I love to mix it up in our art time and add a whole new experience with some sensory fun.  Yesterday we sure had some fun popping popcorn but also shaking it in a bag with food coloring to dye it.  After we made several colors the kids made their art.  

Here is what you will need:
air popper
white popcorn
food coloring
zip-lock bags
construction paper

To allow your young kids a full sensory experience let them help add the popcorn and watch it pop.  My lil man sure had fun watching the popcorn popping.  My popcorn popper does make a lot of noise so be cautious for any of those little sensitive ears.  My Tman was smiling and pointing and ready to dig into the fun, I am pretty sure he dug in and ate a few pieces of popcorn.

After the popcorn is all popped you will need to take two cups of the popped popcorn and put it in the zip-lock back.  Then add two tablespoons of water and 5-7 drops of food coloring.  Zip the bag up and let the little ones shake it up till the popcorn is covered and repeat with each additional color desired.  This activity is fun for all ages!!  My toddler  and preschooler loved it!

I separated all the colors and then got the paper and glue out.  The kids got to pick and choose what ever color popcorn they wanted.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!  

Harlem Globetrotters- A night of Fun! Save 20%

  If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go!  Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM!   I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you.   I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family.   I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night.   Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun.    With that said, my family did have a good time.   We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other.   Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball.   There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering.   My 11 year old had the most fun!   He was standing up and
