Fun Ideas With Corn
- Put some popcorn kernels in a cheap sandwich baggie (not the good freezer kind. You want some air to get in) and add a handful of dirt and a little water. Then tape the baggie onto a window. In about a week or so you’ll see the corn start growing!
You can also have fun with Indian corn - the dried, multicolored type you that you see in stores now:
- Put an ear of Indian corn in a dish of water. Keep the water level up and, in time, you will see all these little sprouts come up along the ear.
- Put a whole cob of Indian Corn into a brown paper lunch bag and fold the end of the bag over to seal it. Put it in a microwave and, alongside, place a small dish of water. (this is so the bag doesn’t burn) Microwave it on high for 3 – 5 minutes and Guess What? You’ll have popcorn on the cob! Yum!
