We made corn on the cob in preschool

One of the best parts of going to the Indiana State Fair is a tasty piece of corn on the cob.

For this activity, the teachers set out some corn, yellow and green construction paper, and glue.

The children glued their construction paper leaves and corncobs to the large sheet of blue construction paper…

Then the children glued the corn seeds onto their yellow corncob.

I love how the leaves are all going in a different direction…

In the classroom next door, the children were having a sensory experience as they sprinkled corn seeds on a large sheet of paper covered with glue…

The children rolled the corn in their hands…

And used their fine motor skills to pinch the corn up off the table.

After the children covered all the glue with the corn…

The corn was set aside so the glue could dry.

The corn covered paper was then rolled up by the teacher and stapled closed to create a piece of corn for the school wide State Fair Food craft contest!

See how these children are shucking some real corn!

    Haha, I hate to say this but It didn’t get my daughter to like eating corn which is so odd to me since corn is one of my favorites:)
