toddler storytime: popcorn kernels

I love using scarves with toddlers, and I recently learned a new rhyme that I’ve been loving. I’ve actually done it a few times without the scarves and it works well that way, too. POPCORN KERNELS (to the tune of Frere Jacques) Popcorn kernels, popcorn kernels (wave scarf over head) In the pot, in the pot […]
