Bubble Wrap Corn for Thanksgiving!

18 11 2008

To get you in the Thanksgiving spirit, we found a creative craft for kids on the blog No Time for Flash Cards– it is age appropriate even for toddlers! Kids will have a fun time making this Indian corn by using bubble wrap! Also, even though this craft is perfect for Thanksgiving, No Time for Flash Cards explains that it is a great craft for kids who are learning about nutrition or gardening, too!



  • 2 pieces of paper
  • A writing utensil
  • Paint
  • A paint brush
  • A plate or container to put paint in
  • A piece of bubble wrap
  • Scissors


  1. On one sheet of paper draw an ear of corn. On the second piece of paper draw husks for your corn.
  2. Squirt some orange/yellow paint in a plate. Help your child press the bubble wrap in the paint and then help them press it onto the paper with the outlined drawing of corn.
  3. Have your child paint the drawing of the corn husks with brown paint.
  4. Once the paint has dried, cut out the corn and the corn husks.
  5. Glue the husks to the top of the corn.
