Such a great and yet easy way to help teach some history while having some fun too! You could use stiff paper plates or the foam or paper mache type plates as an alternative for cardboard, or even cereal boxes painted white for a starting base. Get even more three dimension with the corn by gluing on some actual dried corn kernels! Add some feathers or glued plastic jewels for the others. Thanks for sharing!
