In the wee small hours of the morning....two moms were chatting from almost 2000 miles apart. They were seperated by two times zones, 30+ driving hours, a very large mountain range and more rivers than you want to count...but connected by good friendship and four little girls who adore each other....

C is for Corn
One of my favorite decorations this time of year is the Indian corn that you find at the grocery stores. I love being able to bring a feel of the harvest into the house and add it to our decor for a bit. As far as the girls are concerned tho... popcorn is their favorite form of corn and is a regular snack in our house! :)
The Popcorn Book by Tomie DePaola was a big hit to read and was really full of a lot of cool facts about popcorn. The girls really enjoyed it and I think it was a great book to go along with this easy corn craft for the ABC of Me book!
Who knew you could paint with bubble wrap! :) That is, the little bit that survived the popping that the girls jumped into (literally) the moment that I brought it out! lol Once again, I cut out the shape of the corn with my cricut, but really you could easily free hand this one. We spread the red pain on the bubble wrap and then pressed the yellow corn shape into it! Peel it back and you have a really cool print! :) I told you it was easy!!
