Rainbow Popcorn Party

Monday, at my niece’s house she made us play “Rainbow Popcorn Party”. What you ask is a “Rainbow Popcorn Party”? She just made it up. She’s 4 ½ going on 9. It involves rainbow balloons, streamers and party hats.

We drew balloons and made a sign, and I drew streamers and she taped them to the walls. Then she said we needed party hats. So I cut out circles from construction paper and made cone-shaped hats. They didn’t turn out too well and some were either too big or too small. But they ended up fitting all the stuffed animals, from Pinky the Dog to a big frog. I even made hats for my sister, my niece and myself. Any excuse to play with paper and you can count me in!

We served our guests play food and real popcorn. My sister is a popcorn nut. I gave her an old fashioned popper you crank on the stove and she uses it all the time. She makes the best popcorn ever.

I love how creative my niece is. She always singing or making up funny stories. She spends hours in front of the mirror making faces and doing dance steps. She’s a performer. I love her so much! She says she wants to be an artist “like Aunt Vickie!” when she grows up. I would have to say she is already on her way. She can write all her letters and does the most wonderful drawings. She’s getting good at using scissors now too. We have so much fun together. And, of course, I indulge her every whim. So who am I to say no to a Rainbow Popcorn Party?!

I thought rainbow popcorn was going to be that multi-colored popcorn that you pop. I haven't seen it in forever (haven't looked either). Do you know what I mean? The kernels stay the color they started and of course the popcorn is white.

I love how much you love your family! said...

What a great idea! I know somebody who would get along very well with this special little girl!

This is just the sweetest thing....I used to do this sort of thing with my niece....she's now 9 going on 19! so teaparties with her cuddlies are no more....and I miss it!. Treasure these moments as they'll be gone in the blink of an eye. Great photo! Ange x

Sounds like your niece and my daughter (just turned 4) could be great friends! (: They sound a lot alike, a joy to be around I'm sure!
