My kids, like most, love painting. They also love popcorn. Where can I be going with this? Well, why not combine the two activities by painting popcorn! This kids activity is simple to prepare and keeps kids busy so that they will slow down and really chew their popcorn. We have also had fun with food by making Marshmallow Sculptures.
HOW TO CREATE A PAINTING POPCORN ACTIVITY FOR KIDS
Okay, so you don't need the marshmallows, but they are another fun thing that kids can paint so I threw them in there. I mixed some food coloring with regular milk and placed the different colors in a muffin tin. I provided the kids with popcorn, marshmallows and a paintbrush and let them paint away.
This activity was super easy and uses materials most people already have at home, so try painting popcorn with your kids and let me know how they like it!
Thanks to Living Locurto for the inspiration for this activity.
