Popcorn Blossom Tree

by Aubrey on April 27, 2011

It has been fun for me to see blossoms for so long this year.  Because I started Spring in Texas and now I’m in the DC area, it feels like Spring has lasted forever…..and I love it!  When I look at white blossoms on trees I think of popcorn, so I thought it would be fun to do a popcorn tree.  It was fun for the girls and so simple!  It would also be great for preschool while learning the seasons :)

Supplies:

  • paper (I liked using blue so that the blossoms “popped”)
  • glue
  • brown crayon
  • popcorn (I would have preferred air popping it in my popcorn machine, but because I don’t have it with me, microwave popcorn worked…the only thing I didn’t like was the greasy fingers on the paper.  Should have purchased some non-buttered popcorn.)

First draw a simple tree by sketching a trunk and then lines off of the trunk for the branches.  Glue the popcorn onto the tree and that’s it!

The top picture is my 4 year old’s, this is my 2 year old’s.  A fun project for even the littlest!

Happy Spring!  (I hope it is warming up wherever you are…my family back west is still dealing with snow…blah!)

That looks fun. My boys would love this activityfor two reasons. Fun with glue and snacking on popcorn.

We make these every year in preschool. We do it when we teach 5 senses. Popcorn is great because youc an use all 5 senses. You pop it and you can hear it, you can see it, you can smell it, you can touch it and you can taste it! We have a similiar post on our blog! Fun, fun boredome buster too!
