What supplies you will need for this project:
- Cardstock Paper
- Paint –
- Yellow, brown and orange (for Indian corn)
- Yellow (for sweet corn)
- Paper Plate (to put the paint on)
- Hole Punch or Glue
- Raffia (to tie them together) or Construction Paper (green or brown to make husk)
- Baby Wipes (Optional – just a couple to clean off fingers or any little mess that might happen)
- Cheap Plastic Tablecloth (Optional – to cover your work area if needed)
To get started squirt a little bit of each color paint onto the paper plate and give your child the cardstock they will be painting on (if you have multiple children I would write their name on the back so you can easily see whose is whose). For my younger two I put them in their high chairs for craft projects to help keep the mess to a minimum.
When my oldest (5 year old) daughter is doing this project I just give her the paper, paper plate with paint and the Legos and let her do it pretty much all herself.
With my 1 and 2 year old boys I help them a little bit more, such as dipping the Legos in the paint and handing them one at a time.
So depending on your child’s age you might need to assist them a little bit more or this could be a pretty independent project.
This makes a great fall decoration. If you are looking for more fun fall crafts check this out.
