Kids like popcorn, right?
He wanted to bring something for the Xmas party at school today. He told me last night after hockey, after dinner, after shower…at bedtime.
And I really don’t have anything else to do at 8 pm at night than to start baking…not.
I wanted to watch the Big Bang Theory…(it was a return)…so I ignored the request. Figured something will come to me by morning.
I kept thinking:
- I have some cookies but – no nuts allowed.
- I have some non-nut cookies but – not enough for all the kids.
What to do? By morning, the solution came to me. POPCORN.
While getting breakfast on, I popped the popcorn. I was going to let him take two large ziplock bags to school and let them have at it (can you picture 21 7 and 8 year olds eating popcorn from a bag?) but then there was the dilemma about germs. Kids and their sticky hands…
So, I made little individual baggies by using the plastic sandwich bags (the zipper-less ones I had kicking around) and tied each with ribbon. Each kid can take a baggie and not contaminate the rest of the popcorn. Even made a few extras for teachers or extra kids, or whatever. He carried a gift bag full of popcorn baggies to school and was proud to be the one bringing a treat.
Last day of school. Can’t wait for the end of today!
