Silly as a scarecrow! Keep scrolling to see our Paper Plate Scarecrow kid craft idea come to life, as well as the fun children’s book we paired with him!
Paper Plate Scarecrow – Kid Craft
One of our favorite children’s book series around here is “There Was An Old Lady.” There’s really no real rhythm or reason to the stories within the pages BUT they ALWAYS seem to get some good belly laughs out of my little one.
So it only seems fitting that once fall arrived, that we add the book There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves! by Lucille Colandro to our ever-growing book collection and of course make a great kid craft in honor of it as well!
Our favorite old lady is back and swallowing autumn items!
That wild old lady is back swallowing fall-themed items. What can you make from leaves, clothes, a pumpkin, and rope? That’s right, a scarecrow!
Perfect for back-to-school time.
Whether to celebrate the beautiful autumn season or just to pass some time on a gloomy day – I sure hope you are inspired to make this simple but yet adorable Paper Plate Scarecrow with your little one today! Don’t forget to read the book along with the craft as well!
Happy crafting, my creative friends!!! Don’t forget to share pictures of your child’s paper scarecrow with us on our Facebook page. It makes my day to see those images from our readers! #gluedtomycrafts
