If you saw my post about the Alphabet Letter Sounds Obstacle Course, you know I am now doing a home preschool for the Sugar Snaps. One of the Fall art activities I did with them, was corn crayon rubbings. I remember doing many leaf rubbings as a child and being fascinated by the beautiful images that appeared like magic by simply rubbing a crayon. I love putting decorative corn out in the Fall. It brings the season alive with color. I wanted them to experience the simple pleasure of crayon rubbing using the corn.
Fall Corn Crayon Rubbing:
- One ear of dried corn
- One sheet of white paper
- Scotch tape
Cut the paper to fit the ear of corn and tape it on. The rubbing comes through better when the paper is not doubled up. Then, have your child rub the crayons over the corn until the picture is finished. Unroll and enjoy. This is great for practicing coloring and using a 'helping hand' to hold the corn. Have you done any crayon rubbings yet this season? What did you use? I'd love to hear from you. As always, comments are welcome.
