It’s nearly Thanksgiving, so today I’m sharing this fun Harvest Corn Mosaic Art Project. It’s perfect for helping fine motor skills, as well as good cutting and gluing practice for pre-k and kindergarteners. Here’s what you’ll need!
Harvest Corn Mosaic Art Project
- Construction paper in brown, white, orange, yellow, and red.
- School glue or a glue stick.
Start by taking one brown piece of paper and folding it in thirds.
Keeping the paper folded, trace an elongated football shape on one side and cut it out. You should have three long corn shapes. Place glue on the back of one shape.
Press it down near the top of a piece of white construction paper. Take the other two corn shapes and stack them on top of each other. Then trim off the sides to make them even thinner like shown. Place glue on the back of one, and press it on top of the main corn shape, but angled and down father on the paper.
Next do the same thing with the other leaf shape. See how it now forms the corn cob and the peeled husks? Next you’re going to cut your red, orange, and yellow paper into thin strips, and then into squares. Place a small amount of glue on the base of where your corn cob starts.
Then put down your pieces of colorful “corn” while the glue is still wet. Make sure your colors are as random as possible. Do this all the way up your corn cob, working in small sections so the glue doesn’t dry too fast. Then take a marker or colored pencil and write “Harvest Corn” in cute letters at the bottom.
You’re all done! I hope you enjoy making this Harvest Corn Mosaic Art Project with your little ones!
