Saucepan Popcorn


While a popcorn garland might not be a realistic option for your tree, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the tradition at snack time. This is an easy activity for both you and your toddler.

Cook this saucepan popcorn and enjoy some quality time.

Simply draw a line on construction paper and have your little one line up their pieces. Sneaking bites along the way is encouraged.

Thread a needle and string your own, asking for your helper to hand popcorn to you on occasion.

This is a great opportunity to ask your older toddler some questions about the holidays. It’s always fun to get their perspective on such an exciting time of year.
