Popcorn Popping.......

This year, Saige participated in her school's science fair....we were told that it was voluntary however, anyone who didn't do a project would see their science grade dropped by one letter grade...hmmm, that sounds pretty mandatory to me!! So, we set about doing this fun project...she decided to ask the question...Which brand of microwave popcorn pops the most kernels....sounds easy enough, right? Well, ask Saige how easy it was to count every single kernel of corn, popped and unpopped for 15 bags of popcorn!! ha ha. I think she thought it would be a little easier, but in the end, we had fun putting it all together. Here is the finished presentation board.

We brought all that popped popcorn in cute little popcorn bags to give away, sadly we didn't get a picture before they were gobbled up! Turns out we should have brought the bags in when the projects were being judged...a little bribery could have helped her place!!!

What a cute girl!



Glad that project is over with!! Now, on to the next!
Good job Saige!

What a cute idea for a cute girl but what a lot of work. If I had been there I would have held Bodie while ya'll counted popcorn. Then I would have been Saige's best friend if she had given me a little bag of popcorn. Way to go, Saige. I'm sure you made good on it.

What a great idea! I can't believe how much she has grown-up! She looks like her momma.

That is such a great idea and the poster is soooo cute. I am sure mommy had NOTHING to do with that, right?? I bet it was a huge pain counting all of that popcorn. But...the questions remains....which brand pops the most corn? Inquiring minds want to know.

Well, it sure wasn't her educated guess!! She picked Jolly Time because it's been in the business the longest, but, the big winner was Pop Secret...my personal favorite!! We made sure we gave away the other stuff...ha ha!
