ThanksGiving Crafts!

Since this is a short week and we will all be gathering soon to celebrate with our families and friends to give thanks for all that we have and for the progress that we have made, this week will be devoted to crafty ideas for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
And yes, sometimes a little messy.
But what better sensory play than messy sensory play, right!!

Below is a simple craft that your child can do with very little guidance...ENJOY!

What you'll need:
•Yellow and green construction paper
•Printable corn template
•White glue
•Red, orange, yellow, and white washable paint.

How to make your Fingerprint Indian Corn:
1. Print our a corn template or draw your own.
2. Cut the pieces out.
3. Trace the corn piece onto yellow construction paper, and the husk piece onto green construction paper, then cut both pieces out.
4. Glue the corn piece onto the husk piece.
5. Have your child dip their fingers into the paint and dot the different colors onto the corn.

*This works best if you can convince them to use one color at a time, but looks just as cute if they all get smeared together, too!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Oh, I like that one! I am going to do it with the kids on Wednesday (they're off) - easy enough for Nolan, and Matt can help me with the prep work, too!
