The other day my wife and daughters were having an at-home princess movie night. Watching a movie, of course, requires popcorn. I showed this trick to my girls who were facinated by such a simple concept so I thought I'd share it with you as well.

After your popcorn is done in the microwave, open it just a crack as you can see in the photo. Maybe a little larger than that, even. The popcorn is too big so it'll stay in the back, but all of the loose, unpopped kernels will shake right out. I shake them into a bowl first because the first time I did this I did it straight into a garbage bag. The hot kernels melted right through. Shake them into something before cooling and dumping. Then you can enjoy your popcorn without having a bunch of annoying kernels to sift through to get the good stuff.
