For some fun fall themed painting why not try using corn! This was more of a process and sensory piece of art then one where you get a pretty final product, but it was lots of fun to see what all you could do with a piece of corn. Besides it could make some fun wrapping paper or a great fall banner!

To start with you need corn (preferably in the husks, so you can take advantage of those as well), paint (we used tempera), and paper (a long roll outside was perfect for how messy this could get)!

As part of the fun I let the kids shuck the corn; yeah, they think this is fun! Plus it is a practical learning opportunity too!

Then I let them explore the corn and all the extra pieces with paint. They started with the actual corn cob. Rolling it in the paint and then on the paper seemed most effective. They quickly noticed the bumpy texture that resulted and tried all the paint colors! Towards the end they actually started stamping the ends of the corn cob on the paper as well.

Then they tried husks. These were used as brushes or as stamps, but they really didn’t work too well as either. They quickly figured out the corn silks actually worked better as brushes then the husks!

After they had rolled, brushed, and stamped all the corn parts they started using fingers. The girls drew corn and used fingerprints for kernels while Eli made a finger painted mess of fall colors! They all ended up with very colorful hands, but it was nothing the hose couldn’t fix!
