This paper plate craft couldn’t get any corn-y-er; thankfully in this case that’s a good thing! Kids can make their corn craft as part of a farm unit or they can dap on some orange and brown for a perfect fall harvest craft. I love how we easily made the ears on the corn pop out to set this craft apart from your average stalk of corn :). We also used this method when we made our Paper Plate Acorn Craft.

Draw a corn shape on the yellow part of the paper plate (I did this part for my kids, but if your child wants to they can always draw their own corn). Make a cut at the top of the corn. Have child cut around the corn shape and along the inside edge of the paper plate that was painted green.
