After seeing the pretty Thanksgiving corn craft, on Ramblings of a Crazy Woman (via One Pretty Thing), and since I already had the construction paper out, I decided to do one more quick, Indian/harvest corn craft, with the girls.
I had them cut strips of brown, yellow, red, and orange construction paper into squares. C (age 4), was especially fond of this step.
Then, they glued their paper kernels onto empty toilet paper rolls.
The younger girls were a good deal more haphazard in their kernel placement, than their older sisters - but the copious amount of glue they used, held everything in place.
When they were dry, or at least mostly dry, I stuffed some lunch size paper bags, through them. Recycled, brown, packing paper would be even better.
Then, I ripped, and twisted the tops, to suggest dried husks...
...tied them together with ribbons...
...and hung them up.
I didn't glue the paper bags to the toilet paper tubes, they're just held in place by friction, because I want to be able to easily remove them, so on Thanksgiving Day, they can double as napkin rings.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
