Have you ever plucked kernels from the variegated corn cobs? Oh my they are perfect tiny jewels! We did this activity during Thanksgiving season 2009 and stored the kernels in a Ziploc bag. Last year we used some of the kernels to create a sunflower art and stored the remaining. I took out the bag of kernels and let CJ decorate her mini-pumpkin with the jewels. I don't why, I have an aversion towards sprinkling glitters on the pumpkin so generally I let CJ to paint them with washable paints. Decorating the pumpkin with kernels was a fun activity, boosting fine motor skills and Glitter-free!
Variegated corn kernels
Elmers no run glue (Washable school glue)
Apply glue on a small surface of pumpkin and place the kernels on the glue.
Continue until the whole pumpkin is covered with the kernels.
Let it dry for 24 hrs or more
I have plans of getting more Indian corn cobs this time too! How about you?
