Fall Kids Craft: Mr. & Mrs. Scarecrow

We are enjoying our exploration of all things Fall
& the Lil Divas have been begging to make scarecrows.

After reading The Scarecrow's Hat -
(one of my favorite scarecrow books)
we made easy & fun Paper Bag Scarecrows.

What You Need:
paper bags (brown or white)
construction paper (various color)
yarn or string
newspaper, paper or paper towels

What To Do:
1. Stuff paper bag with crumpled newspaper, paper or paper towels.
2. Tie bag with yarn/string.  
3. Fold over remainder of bag and cut into strips

This will be your scarecrow's head.

4. Cut paper into strips for hair in desired color.

5. I drew a hat onto paper & the Lil Divas cut it out.
6. Glue hat onto strips on top of bag.
7. Add strips on back of hat and under the front as hair.

8. Cut a strip in desired color for the trim on the hat & glue on.

9. Use marker to add facial features -
you can substitute wiggly eyes or stickers for this part as well.

Here are the Lil Divas completed scarecrows -
