Spring Blossoms Popcorn Tree Craft

When I was little one of my favorite songs was

“Popcorn Popping On The Apricot Tree”

Now I sing it with my kids, and we have a popcorn tree craft to go with it!

Ever notice how when the trees first start to blossom in the spring…

It looks like POPCORN?

When we drive around in the spring, the boys and I are always on the lookout for a “Popcorn Tree”.   And it’s really fun to have a craft to make, while we sing the song.

And place the popcorn on the glue.

I’ve also seen this done with chocolate crisped rice treats as a sculpture!

How cute is this??  The green is white chocolate with food coloring, but it could be left white, or a little pink for cherry blossoms!

If you don’t know the Popcorn Tree song, here’s the super cute lyrics:

Popcorn Popping On The Apricot Tree

I looked out the window and what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree
Spring had brought me such a nice surprise
Blossoms popping right before my eyes
I can take an armful and make a treat
A Popcorn ball that would smell so sweet
It wasn’t really so
But it seemed to me
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree
