Corn Day!

Last week, my co-organizer hosted a corn day.  She had 2 corn crafts, and we taste tested different ways to eat corn.  We tried canned corn, popcorn, corn nuts, hominy, baby corn, and mini corn bread muffins.  The kids tasted everything.  Yes they didn't like all the things, but they at least tried one bite of each.  Once they ate a bite of everything, we brought out the "corn" cupcakes.  I found these in the book Hello Cupcake, and have wanted to make them for forever.  The kids just ate the jelly beans off the top.  Our crafts were really fun and messy!  Amanda had a picture of a corn cob printed out, we smeared glue over the cob part, and then put un-popped popcorn all over it.  Then came the really messy one.  Each kid got a piece of construction paper.  We set out plates with different colors of washable paint along with a small piece of cooked corn on the cob.  They got to roll the cob in the paint and then roll it along the paper.  D really got into it, and she just wanted to keep going.  The kids thought the messy crafts were great fun.  Thanks again Amanda!
