Fall Fun for Kids
Isn’t the fall season just magical? It's the time of year when leaves turn different colors, pumpkins dot the porches, and ears of corn become more than just a side dish at dinner.
It's also the perfect time for our corn cob craft. And let me tell you, this isn't your run-of-the-mill corn on the cob. It's a craft version, made of yellow popsicle sticks and green paper. The best part? It's smiling back at you with its cute googly eyes!
So if you need a touch of Autumn on your mantel or Thanksgiving table, this corn craft is for you! Yes, you and your kids! It’s perfect for kids of all ages!
I also love doing crafts tied into whatever we’re doing. So when we’re going to a corn maze(an absolute must!) Then some simple popsicle stick corn crafts add just the right amount of hands-on learning before or after.

Simple and Fun Crafts
Crafts are a great way to engage little hands and minds, and a simple craft is your best bet! This craft idea is not only a fun way to spend time together, but it also offers a great opportunity to discuss the significance of corn in our lives and its history with Native Americans. Plus, it's a super fun corn craft!
First, you'll need yellow popsicle sticks. You can paint regular popsicle sticks with yellow paint, or you can buy pre-colored ones for less mess. For the corn husks, you'll need green paper. Finally, the corn comes alive with a pair of googly eyes and a smile drawn with a black marker. And there you have it, a crafty little corn cob to brighten your day!
Let's not forget that crafts like these are perfect for developing fine motor skills. So whether you are a parent looking for a cute craft or a teacher searching for a special education project, this corn craft is a great fall activity that combines creativity with learning.

Not only do they provide hands-on entertainment, but they're also low-mess crafts (a bonus for parents and teachers alike!) This craft takes the cake by turning these everyday items into adorable corn cob masterpieces.
And easily extend this project by having your children make a whole field of corn! I mean all you need is just a couple of craft supplies! And since the mess is low, your tolerance can be higher.
This is also the perfect addition to your classroom's cutest fall bulletin board! You could even use this project to introduce new fall vocabulary for the littles. For example, words like 'husk,' 'cob,' and 'kernel' might be new to some younger kids.

How to Make Fun Corn Crafts
Place your craft sticks into a point making the shape of corn on the cob.
Glue craft sticks together or by using another craft stick along the back of the popsicle sticks keeping them in place.
Grab a green piece of construction paper and the scissors.
Cut out two corn husks in a curved teardrop shape. The easiest way is to fold your piece of paper in half and then cut one husk piece and it should give you two of the same shape.
Next, glue the corn husks together with the inside corner slightly overlapping.
Next, glue the corn husks to the front of the corn cobs.
The next step is to glue the googly eyes to the corn. We told you this was a fun craft!
