Indian corn

I had this idea brewing around in my head so I was excited to see if it was a keeper...and I think it will be!

Since frozen corn is on sale right now for Thanksgiving we were able to get a large bag for $1. We put the corn on trays in the dehydrator for about 4 hours. The cool leaf tops are actually from a plant in the front yard (sorry I don't know its name) which worked out great.

The materials we used:
*Dehydrated corn
*Thin cardboard from a cereal box cut into the shape of an ear of corn.
*Dried leaves
*Clear tacky glue (my most favorite glue)
*Scotch tape

Yes, even an 18-month old can do it!

River spread on the glue and then spread on the corn. 

I just used scotch tape to adhere the leaves at the top!

Genius! You should win an award. I bet the kids loved doing this one. I'm not familiar with this clear tacky glue - I need to remedy that.
