DIY Popcorn Stand


Summertime is coming to an end and back to school mode is in full effect! Celebrate one of the last weekends of summer with your family, outside with your not so typical, Popcorn Stand! Not to knock lemonade stands, yes they’re delicious, yes they’re refreshing, but come on…who would pass up some freshly popped popcorn on their afternoon or evening stroll?!

What you’ll need: 


– Freshly popped popcorn

–  Your favorite collection of Kernel Season’s Popcorn Seasoning

How to set it up: 


This is the perfect budget friendly, easy DIY family time activity. 

–  Pop popcorn anyway you’d like (microwave bag, stove top, air popper, etc.) DIY Popcorn Stand
