Popcorn play

Whats not to love about exploding food that goes ‘pop’?!  Make your own popcorn and enjoy it as a snack or for edible, sensory play (just add some toy farm animals and some bowls/spoons to a tray of popcorn).  

You will need:

1 tbsp oil

Corn (for popcorn)

A variety of play spoons, bowls and utensils

Plastic animals (and anything else you fancy adding!)


1. Heat some oil in a saucepan (with lid!) and add a few tablespoons of the popping corn.

2. Allow the pan to heat and hold the lid on.  You will hear the corn begin to pop.  Shake and heat the pan until the popping begins to subside.  Take care when doing this, as the corns will pop out of the pan if the lid is removed!

3. Use as a snack and for play with different bowls, spoons and the odd farmyard animal!
