While you're slaving away in the kitchen, here's a little craft to keep the kids busy. We made these a few years ago in my son's class and it was so easy.
You will need beads, raffia, pipe cleaners cut in two, and corn husks.
I think that's a pretty good mix of authentic corn colors in the beads, don't you think?:)
Have your little one bead them on. He's been practicing in preschool and is quite good!
We thought 5 rows was a good number for our corn.
Twist the ends together.
We dampened the corn husks before tying so they wouldn't crack.
Tie the ends with raffia and trim it up.
This is sure to keep their little hands busy for a bit so you can bake away.
We'll be back later to share our mom's winner pie crust!
