Corn-Cob Dolls

I'm loved by children all over, that's why bringing a little extra corn cob lovin into your home is all you need to combat the evil that is television today.

Who wouldn't love a doll with "a corn cob body", "a dried apple for a head" and "inverted rose tree thorns" for eyes and mouth? I mean, come on: THORN EYES?!? Nothing is more cuddly than that!

Awww, poor little Timmy got stuck by his corn cob doll. That will teach him to try and poke my ... er... the dolls eyes out!!

Gnarly Mutant Cob

Boy, those scientists have sure been busy looking into my evolutionary history! Disrupting the ramosa1 gene is all it took to turn your friendly everyday Corn on the Cob into the gnarly mutant cob of the night!

Evolution rocks!

Can't be a corn man without a little corn music! The Korn site linked above might be offensive to some, but not nearly as offensive as a gas hog getting under 10 mpg! Wheeeee!

How about a game of Cornhole!

How to play Cornhole Scoring
  • Players stand alongside a board and toss a cornbag (like a beanbag) at the hole in the opposite-facing board.
  • Each player receives four bags.
  • A bag in the hole earns 3 points.
  • A bag that lands on the board but does not go in the hole is 1 point.
  • A bag that hits the ground first doesn't count.
  • A bag toss of equal value thrown against an opponent cancels the opponent's points.
  • Opponents alternate tosses until all eight bags are played.
  • First player or team to score 21 points wins.

Fun Activity!

Sitting around the house with the kids with nothing to do? Still have those corn cobs laying around from last night's dinner?

Sounds like it's time for some CORN COB PAINTING!!
No brushes needed for this painting and printing activity!
By Kathleen M. Hollenbeck

What you need:
• paper plates (for paint)
• ears of corn (some stripped of kernels, some with kernels)
• tempera paint
• paper (large sheets if available)

What to do:
1. Cover a table with newspaper, and place paper on top.
2. Dip corn cobs in paint, roller-style, and roll along the paper in any direction.
3. Use different colors for a different effect.
4. Compare prints made by cobs with and without kernels.

Learning Benefits
• creative expression
• experimentation

Sounds Delicious!

Haven't tried it myself, but it sounds delicious!

6 cobs of corn
1 stick butter
1/2 can biscuits
Salt and pepper to taste
Cover ears of corn with water. Boil until tender. Scrape off cob and put scrapings in boiling water. Roll biscuits into 1 inch squares and drop into corn broth. Add salt and pepper to taste.

It's Delicious.

I say it didn't happen! Lies, I tell you, lies!
