What is a more popular symbol of harvest than the cornucopia (horn of plenty)? Here is an easy way to make one. While you are working on this project, take the time to discuss with your child where different foods come from.

  1. Roll the sheet of brown paper to create a horn shape. Secure the edges with tape.
  2. Go through the magazines with your child to find appropriate items to add to the cornucopia. Explain that the cornucopia holds food from a harvest: fruits and vegetables that have been picked.
  3. Assist your child in cutting out the magazine pictures or have him tear out the pictures. Let him tape the food into the cornucopia.
