I hope you all have been enjoying the fall & Thanksgiving kid crafts I’ve been sharing on the blog the past few days. We have been busy crafting around here and I have a TON more tutorials to share with you all. Several of which have a turkey theme to them. But first – I want to focus on today’s kid friendly craft titled the lovely Scarecrow. Although scarecrows were originally intended to scare away creatures in the fields – this cute guy isn’t scaring ANYONE today. He’s super easy to pull together, adorable and guess what? It in-cooperates those little handprints too! Ready to learn how to make him? Let’s grab our supplies and get to work!
* Large Paper Plate
* Tan Tissue Paper
* Orange/Brown/Yellow/White Cardstock
* First cut your tissue paper into small squares.
* Put a good amount of glue all over the paper plate and have your child cover it completely, with the tan tissue paper.
* While they are doing that, cut out of cardstock the scarecrow embellishments. Think hat, eyes, nose, mouth etc. Don’t forget to trace your child’s hands, so the cutouts and can become the hair of the scarecrow.* Once done, staple/glue on all the scarecrow features to the paper plate and display proudly!
