so like how's your schedule?
do you have a classroom treat that your kid kinda sprung onto you at the last minute?
"hey mom, are you gonna make some treats like you do every single year again cuz now that you started when i was barely walking when i went to nursery school and everyone expects you to make it now treat?"
he doesn't exactly ask that way but...
it's in your head and you can't get it out.
gosh darn it.
so here's a quick treat that will (hopefully) impress the classmates, so it's a win win all around.
it's pretty easy actually and quick to make.
if your child's school doesn't allow "homemade" treats, well, this is a loophole treat cuz popcorn can be bought. all you're doing is adding to it...
(hmmm, that can be argued but just play along with me ok?)
ok so all you gotta do is pick these up at your local craft or party store. i got these at party city.
so pop some popcorn.
i only had butter kind but it'll probably look better with plain salted white popcorn. but it's the only kind i had in my cupboard and gosh darn it i was not going to the store and overbook my overbooked schedule to get plain white popcorn. just tell everyone you totally meant to use the butter kind to add more color. (cough cough)
ok so once the popcorn is still warm,
no need to measure anything, just throw it in there and mix it up like you mix dressing on a salad.
now fill up your bags and close off with a twistee.
now it's time to decorate.
i used paint cuz it was faster for me to do so. filling up the bags first and then decorating them will assure a good looking face as opposed to decorating and then filling it. (you never know how the face will turn out if you decorate first once the bag is filled).
next add the scarf with some washi tape.
if you're a washi tape hoarder like me, you can make a bunch of different scarves.
for the pic, i was gonna make all the bags up and then take a pic of it but then that would require me to put things in ultra hyperspeed to take the pic before sundown to get better photo lighting, which would mean i had 0.3421 seconds to do so.
so maybe i'll do it next time and i kinda figure you get the picture.
anyway, it's back to the overbooked schedule and tackling some florida winter weather.
it's 83 degrees and humid out!
please send me some snowflakes.
