Corn Husk Doll Kit

IMG_1145 The girls and I had the opportunity to make a Corn Husk Doll from Corps of Rediscovery. 

Where do they get their name?

“The Corps of Discovery was the name President Thomas Jefferson gave to Lewis and Clark’s party as he commissioned them to find an east-west water passage to the Pacific Ocean over 200 years ago.  Their goal was to explore what lies around the next river bend, to seek out new life and new cultures, to boldly discover what had never been discovered before.”

Corps of Re-discovery is a family owned, homeschooling company.  “Working together as a family, they have found and created great project kits to enrich your studies of American Indians, Frontiersmen and Pioneer Americans so you, too can "re- discover" America. 

The Corn Husk Doll Kit:

We enjoyed making the Corn Husk Doll.  It took about an hour to put together.  It is a project for parents to make with their child ages 6 and up.  The directions were a bit confusing for me to read at first because the ‘direction illustrations’ were on the other side of the page. But we figured it out!

Everything needed to make the doll is included in the kit for only $4.50.  If you would like the skirt fabric (which is provided) sewn on, you will need to have a needle and thread at home. 

We are studying Early American History in our home school, so this doll from the pioneer and colonists time period is a great hands-on project for children.  The girls learned that this was a common toy for the children during this time-period.
