In my humble opinion, Indian corn is the most under-represented decoration for Fall. Its natural beatuy and color combinations are a reminder that Mother nature is one smart cookie! To celebrate the a-maize-ingness (har har!) of this natural wonder, here is a simple, Indian corn craft for kiddos...
-yellow, construction paper
-tissue paper squares in fall colors
-green tissue paper squares
1. Using the yellow construction paper, cut out one large petal shape and two petals slightly smaller
2. Glue smaller petals to the sides of the large petal for the open husks of the corn.
3. Crumple fall-colored tissue papers and glue onto the large petal (aka-the corn cob) to form the "kernels."
4. Glue the green tissue paper squares onto the husks, covering them completely.
5. Cut the yellow construction paper into narrow strips and curl them by rolling them around pencil.
6. Glue 2-3 curls onto the corn cob.
