Indian corn makes a great fall decoration, so we decided to make our own! Use our printable corn template and some buttons to make this great fall preschool craft with your children. A few of these hung on a door or window make great homemade fall decorations. If your child/children are too young to use buttons, or you have younger (non-crafting) children in the house and are afraid of loose buttons falling off the craft, we recommend trying the Fingerprint Indian Corn Craft. Our daughter enjoyed making both!

What you'll need:

  • Yellow and green construction paper
  • Printable corn template
  • Scissors
  • White glue
  • Red, orange, yellow, and white buttons - all sizes
How to make your Button Indian Corn Craft:
  1. Print our corn template and cut the pieces out. Trace the corn piece onto yellow construction paper, and the husk piece onto green construction paper. Cut both pieces out.
  2. Glue the corn piece onto the husk piece.
  3. Spread and even layer of white glue onto the corn piece.
  4. Place the buttons onto the glue.
