After a while we went for a movie (as usual my hubby was busy handling the little one). Getting straight the point, one reason kids love going to the movies is a bag full of popcorn. Pop came in the idea, why not carry that excitement home and create some activities.
We did some fun filled activities to engage my little one that evening with some pop corn and boy it worked 🙂
Popcorn sensory bin
We are learning number recognition now and so I decided to throw in some numbers into the bin and asked my little one to fish them out. We named out the number together when he pulled out number by number 🙂
I put in some measuring cups and spoons to help him learn estimation and measurement. This skill would come in handy when we bake together 🙂 I am going to post a video of us baking together soon. Watch out this space for that.
We had these plastic bottles with a narrow mouth which was perfect was this funnel to sit in. He spooned the corn kernels through the funnel. The clinging sound was a music to our ears, so we did the below one.
Corn Music Shakers:
I downloaded this counting printable from here. We did count only up to 4. Anything more than that, is a bit overwhelming for him. And we are taking it real slow 🙂

“Fun Trivia” – America has a pop corn day, isn’t that interesting 🙂
