Pilgrim and Indian Week...Part 1
Part one of this week we focus on Native Americans. We did some really fun crafts that Skylar absolutely loved. We always make the traditional headbands with feathers, letting Skylar color the feathers. Then this year we bought indian corn at the grocery store and then rolled it in paint, and then on paper. It made a cool design, and kept Skylar busy for an hour (that is forever for her :)
We also made a fun treat I found on familyfun.com. Basically it is rice krispie treats made with Corn Pops, colored purple and red with food coloring. Then you mold them into corn shapes on a popsicle stick, and use fruit by the foot to make the corn stalks. Our own edible indian corn. The last project we did was too make our own indian corn. I cut out corn shapes from green construction paper, then tore little squares of red, orange, and purple tissue paper. Then Skylar glued all the squares onto the corn, making her own indian corn. So far so good!!!
