I’d never made popcorn garland before this, but it’s really a fun activity for older kids, and you can use it to decorate inside or to leave a treat for your feathered friends outside!
Rather than making a plain garland, we added dried cranberries to ours to add a pattern with a pop of color.
This is a simple — but somewhat time-consuming — activity that lends itself to lots of conversation and laughter!
- popped popcorn
- cranberries or other colorful dried fruit, optional
- thread & thick needle
Hint: For easy popcorn, add 1/3 cup kernels to a paper bag, fold the top over several times and then pop using the “Popcorn” setting on your microwave.
Carefully string your popcorn using a needle and thread, adding dried fruit every so often to create a pattern or design. Tie off at the end and carefully wrap around a tree.
