Tips to make A Tissue Paper Corn Craft for Preschoolers

*For this craft, you will need to cut the tissue paper into squares ahead of time.  Squares used in the images were roughly an inch in size but can be larger to take less time when covering your corn.

*You will need to finish the corn base first and then add the leaves on top of everything once it is completed.

*To add the tissue paper you can use a glue stick, however, a glue bottle will work best.

*Have kids crumple up the tissue paper as best as possible before sticking it on. You can have them crumble each one and then stick it on or crumble them all first and then stick them all on.
