Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree

Look how cute these are!!!  and they're prefect for the Spring time :)

All you need is 6-8 empty TP rolls, green paper, popcorn, and glue!  Slice a slit at the top of the TP roll and stick the green paper on top - and then glue popcorn to the tree.  Write song titles on the back and let a child choose a tree during singing time.  Make sure to have one of the songs be Popcorn Popping!!!

You can also hand out little popcorn balls at the end if you want :)
Here is our Yummy recipe:

Jello Pop Corn Balls
1 small pkg. jello (we use green, but you can use orange or strawberry too)
1 c. sugar
1 c. white karo
Bring to a boil slowly.  Cook until sugar is dissolved.  Pour over popped corn.  mix and shape into balls

  1. Cute idea! I read on one blog that popcorn in Portuguese is "Pipoca" (pronouced pee-po-ka) so we like so substitute this word for popcorn throughout the song and it's quite the mouthful and lots of fun!
