Indian Popcorn Corn

We wondered what would happen if we microwaved indian corn.  You guessed it, popcorn!


Here is what we used:
Indian Corn
Two paper bags

1. Cut off the stalk

2. Put the corn cob in one bag and place the other over the top.

3. Place in microwave for 2 mins 15 seconds

Salt Dough Pumpkins

These little salt dough pumpkins are super simple.  If your kids can roll a ball they can help with their own pumpkin.


We used:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Food coloring (you can use paint after if you perfer)
stick for the stem


Mix salt, flour, and water. I used a mixer to get my color to mix evenly.

The kids each rolled a ball

I helped them put the lines in with a wooden Skewer.

We topped it off with a small stick for the pumpkin stem.

We baked for 3 hrs at 250.

Leaf Rubbing

Here is the best way I have found to do this. Always turns out beautiful!


Here is what we used:
A handful of leafs

We grabbed a few leaves and sent them through the laminator.

Then we used white printer paper and taped it on top, just so the paper wouldn’t move.

We took a few crayons without the wrapper and let the kids rub away.

Leaves with Leaves

I love this leafy project for so many reasons.  Kids loved the textures.  I love that I could go out in my yard and grab supplies.


What we used:


1. We gathered leaves. You can let them sit out to dry. I threw then in the oven at 350 for about 10 mins.

2. I grabbed the biggest leaf I could find from my maple tree. Of couse you could find a cut out online to trace, but the kids enjoyed touching a real leaf. We also added a few of the veins, no need to add them all.

3. Trace your pen lines with glue.

4. Crumble the dry leaves over the glue. Dump off excess leaf crumbs.
