The girls were actually excited that we were making flowers today. These poinsettias are simply made with construction paper, but the centers were made out of popcorn.

1. Cut out several leaves using red and green construction paper.

2. Glue three green leaves to a piece of construction paper.

3. Working around in a circle glue the red leaves over the green leaves.

4. Apply glue to the center of the flower.

5. Place popcorn on the glue. (make sure you pop extra, my girls ate a piece for every one that they glued:)

So there you have it. A popcorn enhanced poinsettia!


  1. Popcorn! I just used a yellow construction paper circle, but popcorn, sheer brilliance! We made your rice trees today. Thank you for so many wonderful ideas. What are "we" making in January? I can't wait!

  2. Popcorn!! An excuse for me to have a snack. So Easy! My girls are going to love it. I have all the supplies too! Hot Diggity Dog!!
