Here’s how to make Potato Masher Corn Craft for Toddlers
Gather your supplies.
Set out your paints. I like to either use paper plates, bowls or a paint pallets for easy dipping.
Let your little one dip the potato masher into the paint and stamp the white paper with the brown, orange, and yellow.
If you are just making fresh corn for Fall just use the yellow paint!
If you are going to make Thanksgiving decorative corn you can add orange and brown!
Set the sheets of paper with the potato masher stamps aside to dry for a few minutes.
Next, cut out the corn husks from green construction paper.
Glue them to a sheet of brown paper.
Once the painted sheets of paper is slightly dry, cut out three shapes of corn.
Next, glue the painted cob of corn to the husks.
