Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs...For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:1-2, 5

Corps of Re-Discovery

I was given a cornhusk doll to review from Corps of Re-Discovery.


Here she is…isn’t she cute! These dolls, learned by Iroquis indians, gave colony and pioneer children something to play with that was made out of the limited materials that they had. It is a kit that gives you everything you need to make it, except a needle and thread. Each doll is $4.50...originally $6.50, so apparently they are on sale right now.  It was relatively easy to put together. It, of course, came with instructions on how to assemble the doll that were mostly easy to understand. I am a visual person so it took me a little reading, re-reading and looking at the little hand-drawn pictures to get it right, as the pictures were not necessarily next to the steps. I am not sure what age group this is for as far as doing it themselves, but with a good amount of adult help and supervision it could be for ages 7 and up.                             

Here is the boy version…


Corps of Re-Discovery has many kits that would be fun for any child to play with. I look forward to getting some more items for my kids, since we are studying American History this year. I think the boys will be interested in the coon hats...Davy, Davy Crockett man of the wild frontier!

I would recommend this company and their products if you are looking for inexpensive items to do hands-on projects with your children.

  1. Yes, the corn doll does require more help-I think your listed age is pretty close. Your boys may like the tomahawk too-that was my son's favorite one. And since it comes with a leather blade it is pretty harmless (of course not if used to attack one's fellow brother it isn't-but used as a prop for make believe or whatnot)...
    glad you enjoyed it.
