It seems like just about everything these days can be transformed into a fun art project (much to the dismay of my husband)…often including what otherwise might go in the trash. After eating fresh corn on the cob recently, I saved the husks and dried them out on a paper towel.
They made for the perfect paintbrushes!
Here’s what you need: paint, dried corn husks (dried at least overnight) and paper!
Give your child the corn husks and let them start painting.
We decided to paint outside and without shirts (the boys, not me…obviously). :)
I love the texture of the corn husks…they leave such pretty lines in the paint.
The finished product…aren’t they beautiful?!?! The top is Little Brother’s and the bottom is Big Brother’s. This would also be a great activity to do around Thanksgiving!
What untraditional “paintbrushes” does your child use???
