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 :)
- paper (I liked using blue so that the blossoms “popped”)
- 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!)
