With the big kids heading back to school, the little ones at home often feel left out. Today we’re sharing some ideas for a fun playdate inspired by The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The movie is being released on Blu-ray/DVD tomorrow (August 27th), so grab a copy and invite your little pals to come along on a visit to the Hundred Acre Woods.
We are sure Pooh would love this Hunny Glazed Popcorn. It’s the perfect thing to snack on while watching the movie, and it’s super easy to make!
HUNNY GLAZED POPCORN RECIPE
2 bags Brown Bag Microwave Popcorn
3 tablespoons Butter
3 tablespoons Honey
Pinch of Salt
While popcorn is in the microwave, melt butter in saucepan on the stove. Add honey and salt then mix well. Pour over popcorn and gently toss. You may wish to add more salt to taste. Serve up the popcorn in these darling cones made from our free printable Honeycomb Pattern Paper.
TO MAKE POPCORN CONES print our Honeycomb Pattern Paper and trim off the white edges. Hold the paper with the long side up, bring the top two adjacent corners together and roll into a cone shape. Roll and twist to tighten the bottom of the cone into a point. Secure with tape.
Once the movie is over the kids will enjoy making a Winnie the Pooh Craft to take home. These sweet Honeycomb & Bee Banks are the perfect way to encourage little ones to save for a rainy day.
TO MAKE A BEE BANK you will need our Honeycomb Pattern Paper, scissors, tape and a lidded cardboard can (such as a peanuts, baking powder or mini-Pringles container). Cut the paper into a strip that is the same height as your can. Tape one end to the can then wrap around secure the other end. Using scissors or a craft knife cut a slit out of the plastic lid. Place lid back on can, and finish with pipe cleaner bees to guard your savings.
TO MAKE A PIPE CLEANER BEE wrap a pipe cleaner around a pencil five times. Slide off the pencil and bring the loose end around and back through all of the loops. Pull through and tighten to create one bee wing. Bring the end around again and pass through the loops a second time, tightening to create the second wing. Wind up and scrunch the remaining length of pipe cleaner to create the bee’s head. Glue on two googly eyes to bring your bee to life!
