Our friends at Dale and Thomas Popcorn have given us $20 gift cards to give away every week through the end of the year!

* Each week we'll have a new giveaway that will start on Monday and will end at midnight ET on Sunday night. Giveaways will be posted in different sub-forums each week, so you'll have to look around to find it.

* Each week's contest will have a different theme as well to keep things interesting. You must enter each week separately - entries do not carry over week to week.

* At the end of each week, we'll select a winner who will receive a $20 Dale and Thomas Popcorn gift card.

THIS WEEK'S CONTEST: Reply with a creative use for popcorn that does not involve eating it.

Good luck to all :)

Wal-Mart thief uses flaming popcorn bag :eyepoppin ORLANDO - A bag of popcorn was intentionally set on fire inside a Wal-Mart in Orlando on Thursday night, prompting officials to evacuate and close the store, according to authorities. Fire officials responded to reports of flames inside the Wal-Mart on Clarcona-Ocoee Road in Orlando Thursday night. A fire extinguisher was used to stop the fire before there were any injuries and a store manager said she believes the fire was set as a diversion to steal items from the store. Investigators are viewing surveillance video to see if they can spot the culprit.

Instead of a ball pit use it as a popcorn pit....the kids have fun and it is cheaper than the balls....and you don't mind throwing it away afterwards

Let your kids use it to paint with so they get a cool new texture in their art work.

Great to use at Halloween for parties! You can use food coloring to doctor it up for games and / or decorations.

Popcorn is great to use to prank someone!! Use the cabinet located right about someone's toilet. Open both doors and carefully fill them with popcorn (using a piece of cardboard to hold the popcorn in). When full, shut the doors, and carefulyl slide the cardboard out. Next time someone tries to get inside of the cabinet, they'll have a big surprise waiting for them!

Use it instead of confetti at a party... easy to clean up and the critters outside get a treat from the party as well! :)

Make the old peanut butter on a pine cone ornaments and roll in popcorn instead of bird seed. Environmentally safe bird feeder for the winter without any waste to throw away.:yup:

You can use it as insulation on a "green" home or when tightly packed together can be carved into a sculpture.
