In our continuation of making Christmas crafts I popped a huge bowl of popcorn, pulled out some plastic pony beads, and some fishing line to make some garland. A & I did this project together and the results are cute.
A started putting the popcorn on the fishline by threading through each piece.
I told her she could add beads to the garland which she actually preferred. She found it challenging to use the small threading needle which got a little slippery from the oil used to pop the popcorn. I tried using some larger plastic needles but they would split the pieces of popcorn. I’m sure it would have helped had the needles been a bit larger.
Our adjustment was that she would hand me the popcorn pieces that I would thread, she would then add the plastic pony bead. It was fun and she enjoyed seeing the garland get longer. I think her favorite part was putting it on the tree. It was so cute to watch her decorate their tree. She just oozed confidence when decorating it.
