Easy Corn Craft For Preschoolers [Free Template]

We’re always all on the lookout for simple and fun crafts for young kids to make.

With fall right around the corner, we realized we don’t have many non-Halloween fall crafts! Because of that, we made this easy corn craft for preschoolers.

It’s cute, simple, and easy for little hands to make all by themselves!

Besides providing some fun, hands-on entertainment, this craft is great for working on fine motor skills, providing a background to learn new fall vocabulary, and learning to work with glue.

Watch our video tutorial or read the detailed direction below to see how to make this craft with your preschoolers, pre-k, and kindergarten children this fall!

Directions

Download the corn template, print, and cut out the pieces. There is a bubble-shaped corn that looks more realistic (but is harder to cut for little kids) or a simplified version for the youngest kids.

How To Create A Fall Preschool Study Unit

More and more we receive emails from parents asking if we have related content to make a preschool study unit.

Because of this, we are sharing all of our favorite fall preschool ideas to help you get started!

Reading to kids is one of the best things you can do for your children!

Reading helps preschoolers develop their vocabulary, improves their literacy rate, boosts creativity, cognitive abilities as well as social-emotional intelligence- among other benefits.

So next time you’re looking for some fun storytime activities with your little one, grab a book from your shelf and read to them! Below are some of the top fall themed books for kids.

There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Leaf: The mischievous old lady swallowed a handful of leaves! Her tummy started to rumble. So she swallowed some more items. Then even more. But as her stomach grew full, the leaves began to poke out through her mouth… when suddenly – poofffff! – it turned into a scarecrow!

Pete The Cat Falling For Autumn: Pete is not a fan of fall. But he decides to do some detective work and finds out that there are lots of things about this season he loves, like corn mazes, hayrides, wearing scarves, and apple picking! This story helps kids learn that even though they might not love every season of the year, there are still good parts to each one.

We’re Going On A Leaf Hunt: The seasons are changing, the days getting are shorter, and children everywhere are starting to make plans for their favorite outdoor adventures – and what could be more fun than a Leaf Hunt?!

Be sure to check out all of the fun fall craft ideas we have. It’s amazing how much kids can learn by crafting!

Not only by working the small muscles in their hands, but also by using the topic as a springboard for fall vocabulary, storytelling and questions.

Some of our favorite fall-themed crafts include this handprint apple tree, this crow craft, and this paper plate hedgehog.

All of these crafts use common supplies so you won’t need to get anything special prepared ahead of time!

Besides crafts, we also love fun and interactive style learning printables like these fall preschool printables.

They help kids work on counting, patterns, graphing, fine motor skills, alphabet recognition and more!

We also enjoy using these fall color by sight word worksheets for kids who are up for a challenge!

Putting together a quick and fun fall sensory bin is also a great idea to help kids process what they’re learning and have open-ended playtime.

If your child likes playing with sensory bottles, they’ll be mesmerized by this glittery fall leaves sensory bottle.

Finish up this fall preschool unit in the kitchen when you make these pumpkin rice crispy treats! There are so many opportunities for kids to learn while cooking and baking!

Hey Leslie! If you're not able to see it, that almost always means you have a firewall blocking you from seeing it. If you can turn it off for the page, or use a home computer, you should be able to see it 👍
