for the microwaveable kind: this is one of the few sounds that calms my DD (14mos) down lately. i seriously will microwave bag after bag every day just to calm her.

take pieces of white, orange, and black fabric - cut into squares the size of your standard bandana. place a handful of popcorn in the center of each cloth square pull the corners up and rubber band the ball of popcorn in place. next take a piece of fishing line, hook it through that rubber band and hang the popcorn & cloth combo from a tree branch. repeat with all of the materials until no cloth is remaining and until your yard is beautifully decorated for halloween.

i also do this with easter egg colors.

drawer satchels & closet fresheners:
1. take popped popcorn and either A: stuff into a knee high or B: put in a small bowl/jar
2. Take essence oils (i prefer lavender) and sprinkle onto the popcorn (take it easy killer, i said sprinkle, not drown).
3. place in the back corner of drawers or hang from a coat hook in the closet. If using a bowl/jar you are really limited to just putting it on a shelf in your closet (and goodness i hope you don't have pets)

at our school carnival we have found it is a way to resurface the gym floor, by the end of the night the floor is completely covered. Another favorite is to string it and hang it outside in the trees to feed the birds and squirrel's.

With all the reports of the chemicals in popcorn possibly being harmful for long term breathing exposure (broncheolitis obliterans), I wouldn't do this. The news is full of these reports including a person who would pop several bags a day for a decade just to smell it. To be on the safe side, I would consider recording the sound of the popping corn to see if that works.

Does this mean I won't get the gift card giveaway??:confused:

Use a popcorn popper to make indoor snow. Try to see how many "flakes" you can catch on your tongue!

use it in large baggies when shipping breakables...instead of bubble wrap or styrofoam oops...someone already said that one glue it on styrofoam balls or a topiary form so you will have popcorn decor.

Make Popcorn Ball Ornaments! Just mix the popcorn with white glue and form into a ball. Then let your kids paint on them! We did this when I was a kid and my mom still has them and puts them on the tree 20 years later!

The winner for this week is steph3306. Congrats :)

Due to unforseen circumstances, we are temporarily postponing the weekly contests until I hear back from D&T regarding prize fulfillment and the possibility of offering better prizes for the next month. Look for another announcement soon.
