Welcome to Barefoot Dokusha! Here you will find reviews of the books that I have been reading - a variety of genres, but mostly YA, places I have been, and deals that can be found.

I enjoy sharing things I find with others, and hope that you enjoy them too!

National Popcorn Day - Activities

Today is National Popcorn Day! Are you a fan of popcorn? How do you like yours? When I go to the movies I love extra butter or cheese. Throughout the day you will find popcorn recipes, crafts, and more! First we will start off with some activities.

Popcorn Art

Put out a bag of popped popcorn along with construction paper and art supplies-challenge children to come up with some creative art using the popcorn!
Dancing Popcorn

Fill a clear cup  3/4 full with vinegar.  Add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Drop in a few kernels of un-popped popcorn.  Watch as the kernels rise and fall.
Popcorn Garlands for birds

If you leave popcorn out for a few days, it will get stale and hold together better when strung. String popcorn with thread and needle. You can also add berries, dried fruits, nuts, and seeds, between the popcorn. Hang the popcorn garlands on tree branches outside for the birds.

Growing Popcorn in a Bag
  Instructions: Take a plastic zip-loc baggie, put cotton balls in it and saturate cotton balls with water. Put popcorn kernels into the bag; seal it and tape to a window. Add water as needed and watch the plants grow. Transfer to potting soil later.
