Popping Popcorn

Create a soccer field by drawing lines on a piece of paper. Mark goal posts with pipe cleaners, markers, or Place foam balls on a blanket in the middle of the room. Have your child hold one end of the blanket while you hold the other. Shake the blanket together and watch the balls fly off. You can shout “Popcorn!” while you do it. Have your child try to catch the balls and gather them back on the blanket as fast as they can!
