National Popcorn Day

Today is National Popcorn Day, and we made our favorite fun recipe to help celebrate. I didn't think we would be able to make our traditional popcorn cake, but just in the last week we have received cashews, M & Ms, and marshmallows in three separate boxes! We were soooo excited.

When you press the "cake" into the pan, it helps to have a realllllly strong person around to smoosh everything down - perfect job for my Benjamin.

If you have a library nearby, check out the books "The Popcorn Book" by Tomie dePaola and "Popcorn at the Palace" by Emily Arnold McCully to read while you munch, or read the following poem aloud to your hungry crew.

A Popcorn Song
Sing a song of popcorn

When the snowstorms rage;

Fifty little round men

Put into a cage.

Shake them till they laugh and leap

Crowding to the top;

Watch them burst their little coats

Pop!! Pop!! Pop!!~
