Indian Popcorn Corn

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

image

Here is what we used:
Indian Corn
Knife
Two paper bags
Microwave

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.

image

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
Toothpick/Skewer

image

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!

image

Here is what we used:
A handful of leafs
Laminator
Tape
Crayons

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.

image

What we used:
Leaves
Paper
Glue
Pen

image

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.
