Beaded Indian Corn

This is a repost from last year! We made this Indian Corn again this year as gifts for Grandparents!!
Day 2 of the week - The theme this week is Thanksgiving. The letter of the week is U, u and the number of the week is 19
Project - Beaded Indian Corn - Directions - Cut a chenille stem in half and form and x. Wrap one stem around the center of the x twice, leaving a short length of the stem. Bend the three remaining stems to form an Indian corn shape. Connor and Lauren's turn - string beads on each of the three long stems, alternating colors. Bend the end of each stem to secure. (I let Connor and Lauren pattern their own beads - they did a different pattern for each stem). My turn again - Knot a piece of raffia around the short stem. (You can attach a magnet on the back if you want). Materials Needed - scissors, 12-inch chenille stem, tri-beads - red, gold, orange, brown, yellow, clear, Raffia, glue - to help with attaching the Raffia, magnet - optional.
Learning Activities - I have been using the workbook Everything for Early Learning Preschool workbook. (I purchased it at Wal-Mart)
Today's Activities:
The letter U, u- writing, recognition, following directions
The number 19- recognition, writing, counting
Number Review - recognition, counting, ordering, following directions, writing
