Popcorn is not only a delicious thing to eat, it is also a fun food to play with! Today, I made some fun little paperclip bookmarks using Pop Secret popcorn, some paperclips and some sparkly sticker foam. Fun!
The crafts and tutorials I post here on the blog I try to make as easy as possibly. Mainly because I want my kiddos to help if they can, and really, that’s all the time I have. If something is too complicated, I tend to pass over it. That goes with all aspects of my life. Call me lazy, or call me efficient… all I know is that ain’t nobody got time for that! 😉
Easy Popcorn Craft: Flower Bookmarks
Pop Secret is currently having a fun contest where they are challenging their fans to create an amazing craft using their delicious popcorn and paperclips. Yep– paperclips! This is what we came up with, and my kiddos love it! They can virtually make any shape they want, slap it on a paperclip, then glue some popcorn on it and feel accomplished.
Cut out any flower shape about 2″x2″. I just free-handed my flower shape, but you can trace your flower shape with a marker on the back and then cut it out.
Peel the sticker back off about half way, stick the top of the paperclip to the adhesive back of the foam sticker and then smooth the paper backing back over the paperclip and foam. Don’t take the paper backing off. If you do, just stick another piece of foam on the back and cut it to the shape of your flower. No big deal! Put a dot of glue in the middle of the flower and glue down a piece of popcorn. This will give your flower bookmark some dimension and personality. Feel free to have your kiddos color the popcorn with markers if you want them to!
I love the bright colors and the contrast against the popcorn! My daughter was excited that I stuck a little surprise in her library book. I think it’s a great reading encouragement. Both of my girls are begging me to make some more, so that’s something we will try to do this weekend!
