It's camping season again - yippee! It's time to unpack the bell tent and head off for some adventures, but first we've been testing our campfire popcorn making machine in the garden. We wired together two sieves (bought from the charity shop) and attached them to a long stick. Then we soaked some corn in oil so it would burn and put it in the sieve before holding it over the hot ashes to pop ~ watch it pop below. 

It's not perfect and you do get burnt ones, but it's so much fun to watch them pop! 


  1. Wow Emma! That's clever AND you get to watch them pop! We just made our first batch of campfire popcorn too and it will not be our last. We used the aluminium foil method.

  2. What a great idea! I will definitly be doing that with my little scout girls come summer camp! (and I will probably try it before over the barbecue ;-) )
