Making Corn Husk Dolls

We are continuing to study the Native Americans, using the American Girl Kaya as our springboard.  Currently, Miss M is working on a lapbook comparing the different tribes and their lifestyles.  The crafts, however, are still her favorite part.

We followed the directions found here to make corn husk dolls.

We actually took the husks from some corn we bought and dried them ourselves, but you can buy them at a craft store.

The directions were very easy to follow, although Miss M did need some help tying the strings.  Not to leave The Bug out, I made him a boy doll at the same time.

Miss M declared this one of our most fun crafts!
