It's Getting Corny in Here!

Corn is my favorite food and has been as long as I can remember. 
Even before I have memories, my momma has pictures to prove it!
It wasn't hard to get into the Fall corn craze and get crafty with my Little Mister. I even found ways to throw in some learning activities as well.

This is our first time to do any bubble wrap painting and it was so fun. I taped the sheet to the table to keep it in place and let him do his thing. It didn't take him long to figure out those bubbles POP. We did however manage to make some cute Indian Corn to hang in our kitchen.

Some Language Arts fun. I used fruit cups and spelled out the word corn. I gave him a handful of candy corn and asked him to put two in the O cup. Then, put one in the R cup. You get the idea.

We did some pre-writing exercises with a printable I made. He traced the line to help the farmer get to the corn field. The printable is at the end of this post.

Learning the letter C. After I managed to convince him that it was NOT a hat, we put glue on it and attached some popcorn. More went in the mouth than on the letter!

We practiced some candy corn math. See the full post and get the printables here.

And of course we had to do some painting!

    1. Thank you so much! He had a blast painting the bubble wrap and got real messy trying to pop them all after we pressed the paper on. So if you try it.... just be prepared! LOL
