About the Project
I've been waiting to make these since I read the instructions in my school reader this year. I finally reminded my mom to buy corn husks at the store! It was really fun to make a girl and boy corn husk doll to play with, just like kids who lived a long time ago. It was really important to soak the corn husks first otherwise they would have broken and ripped as we tied them. Mom helped me and it was lots of fun. I've played with them lots since making them.
