The holidays are upon us, and it can be inundated with lots of sugary treats for the kids. Here's a great alternative that a friend of mine told me about.
We first followed the directions on the bag of popcorn kernels we had purchased to pop our popcorn. We added some oil to our pan and popped a half cup of popcorn at a time. I completely forgot to have the lid to the pan ready to go and the kids had a great time watching popcorn flying out of the pan while I scrambled to get a lid. Sometimes the simplest mistakes can bring out the best memories.
(To keep this activity very safe, the grownup can make the popcorn ahead of time.)
After we finished popping our popcorn, we added some salt for flavor and set the popcorn aside to cool. We then grabbed our box of food-service gloves and added our colored goldfish into each slot for the fingers.
And finally, we cut some pipe cleaners in half and tied off the bag using an orange pipe cleaner for the turkey's feet. We then attached a red pipe cleaner at the base of the thumb to make the turkey's wattle.
