As I offered Husband to be a collaborator to to Stupid Ideas of the Day and he refused I took the freedom to publish his ideas as if they were originally mine :D.

It happens that husband is the best corn popper at home –  and he uses to do it on the traditional stove with oil and a big sauce pan. Though the popcorns get very big and the most of them pop, there are always unpopped kernels which annoy him.

Then his stiod was just born: a bowl that has holes big enough to sift the spare kernels and hold the tasty big popcorns. This way you will only serve the greatest popcorn without risk to your teeth.

Kernel and popped popcorn

It is just appropriate and does not demand better explaining or does it?

 

 

Popcorn race

10 Jun

Get a cold and rainy day. Put together five kids. Add three bowls of popcorn. Mix all together, then turn the TV on and let it be for about an hour.

If your leaving room is clean after that, congrats, you can skip reading. If not I suppose soon your little guests (or kids, if your are a parent) will need more stimulus. In our endless search for distractions for those challenging kids I found out some fun contest:

Kids are to be divided in two groups (little Hugo got to be in the white zone) – we draw and assemble some medals, then start the race:

The group who gets more popcorn into the little bag will get the gold medals, the other team would be given the silver ones.

The floor would get a bit easier to vacuum cleaning and the little angels have a bit of fun – as well as the “old Ant” Sonia.
