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.

Paper Plate Corn Craft
Craft paint-green & yellow, orange and brown (optional)
Paper plate (we used the cheap flimsy kind)
Have child paint the center of the paper plate yellow, and then dap orange dots with their finger to make the kernels.
Have child paint the outside rim of the paper plate green on the back and front side of the paper plate and set it aside to dry.
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.
Take the end of the green edge and staple it to the bottom of the paper plate.
Take the other end and staple it on top of the previous piece and the craft is done.
Add in some extra activities for play and learning to go along with this craft with Corn Kernels and Popcorn Science!
