Do you have a bottomless supply of popcorn in your fridge (or cupboard) like our family does? Yeah, we’re so hip to the popcorn tip we began storing our ‘corn in a glass jar in the fridge.
If you’re as jazzed about popcorn as our family is, consider joining the Kernel of the Month Club at Popcorn.org. I signed up today to win free popcorn prizes. :D
We’re starting our celebration at my #1 choice for the online authority in “Days of National Awareness” – NationalAwarenessDays.com. They offer lots of cool ideas and fun facts for celebrating this unique day of fluffy goodness. Yummm…
Pop on over to the Orange County Swap Meet for a free bag o’ corn and a fun-filled experience with Kaptain Kernal on Jan. 19 or Jan. 20. Special thanks to OCMomBlog.com for sharing!
And how cute are these ideas from Leslie F, a teacher from Concord, Illinois?
The Popcorn Board (at Popcorn.org) also has the following cool links. Enjoy these quick clicks for your own edification, or share with your family, friends and students.

Finally, be sure to check out or buy The Popcorn Book by Tomie DePaola. Yeah…it’s tough for me to remove my Reading Specialist hat – I just love sharing books! Mea Culpa. The Popcorn Book has been on my Top 10 list of Favorite Books since the early ‘80s when my Daddy read it to me! An informative book full of cool facts about one of the world’s most favorite treats, this book showcases DePaola’s famous illustrations and is engaging for kids young and old.
Happy National Popcorn Day!
