Peeling the Corn

This activity is more suitable for children of age 2 1/2 years +. Invite the child by introducing that we are going to do an intresting activity and direct him/her towards the piece of work where it is kept on the shelf. Once brought to the table show him/ her how peel by doing it yourself first. Then let the child try. Enjoy the light on the face of the child when he/ she sees the actual corn come out after the skin is off. Finishing up is important to inform that the skin of the corn could be used to make compost.
