leftover popcorn


It’s happened to just about all of us….we’ve popped a bag a popcorn and didn’t barely make a dent in it (doesn’t happen often here!) OR you’ve gone to the movies and gotten the big tub of popcorn and got a refill on your way out.  Either way you are sitting with uneaten popcorn staring at you from the counter.  I don’t know why I have a hard time throwing out popcorn, but today it bothered me enough to get me thinking….thinking of ways that we can salvage our uneaten popcorn…….monumental discussion I know with the election today 🙂

ANYWAY…here are some ideas for yummy or crafty things you can do with your leftover popcorn…or HEY you may be so inspired that you’ll go pop a new batch just to try out one of these ideas.

1. Make a popcorn craft!

Branches are blown paint.  Add trunk with brush.  Make popcorn while the paint dries.  Add glue dots to branches.  Glue leftover popcorn as blossoms.  C/O toddler approved (blog).

String popcorn for a decoration (Christmas or party)

Popcorn necklaces for kids

1. Buy a clear glass Christmas globe 2. Paint unbuttered popcorn kernels green and red 3. Fill the globes half full with the painted kernels (after letting them dry) 4. Put them in the microwave for 30 seconds or so until filled with popped kernels (yes it's okay to put them in the microwave) 5. Tie a decorative string on the globe and you've got a homemade Christmas ornament :)
