About Corps of Re-Discovery
Corps of Re-Discovery is owned by a homeschooling family and was formed after they took a 14 month journey, traveling through 47 different states learning and exploring.
Working together as a family, we 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 Cornhusk Doll Kit
The cornhusk doll kit costs $4.50, and included everything we needed to make the doll, except for thread or glue to sew the apron and scarf. Also included were detailed instructions with illustrations. The illustrations where very helpful as I am a very visual person!
Emily and I worked on making the doll together. I did most of the actual construction of the doll and she picked out the best pieces of cornhusks and helped me tie the pieces together.
Here is the doll as she was drying (and being lovingly held).
I cut the fabric for the apron and scarf and let Emily glue the edges. The directions suggested sewing, but Emily was much to impatient to finish the doll so we opted for fabric glue, which worked nicely.
Emily LOVES this doll and wouldn’t put it down once we finished it ~ seriously, she didn’t even give it time to dry! I am amazed at the cost, just $4.50! We both had fun making the doll and when she isn’t being carried around the house, she is proudly displayed on our nature table.
