Paper Plate and Tissue Paper Indian Corn

Last week at the library, just as we were leaving, the kids noticed an Indian corn craft. They of course all wanted to do it; why is it that when it's time to go everything looks fun? We needed to get home for lunch (and naps!) so I promised we do our own version later. 


Our Supplies: paper plate with corn cob drawn on to it, tissue paper squares, glue, scissors, tan paint, paint brush, & a stapler 


Step 1: Cut the corn cob out of the paper plate


Step 2: cut three strips from ridge of paper plate - these will be your husks

parts of the plate you'll use, discard the rest 
Step 3: paint your husks & set them aside to dry

we enjoy a good paint mess at our house but if you
aren't so inclined crayons or markers would work just
as well. 

Step 4: scrunch tissue paper squares into balls and glue them to your corn ear

i love how his lips get involved in the gluing 

Step 5: let everything dry
Step 6: staple husks to top of ear of corn

our indian corn - some of us were better at
"scrunching" than others
