Corn-Cob Rolling: After eating corn on the cob (eat all the corn off or pull the uneaten kernels with your fingers) put the cobs on a bamboo skewer and stick the skewers in a piece of Styrofoam to dry. Do not scrape the cobs to clean them since the interesting patterns on the cob will be removed. The children make a corncob print by rolling the cob in tempera paint and the rolling the cob on paper. For more on this activity see Everyday Discoveries page 75.
