Craft Supplies to make a Simple Scarecrow Craft
Pdf file for personal use, non-commercial use. You can use it a bunch of times to print!
Home printer or print at a print shop
White cardstock paper
Optional: colorful card stock or construction paper
Download the pdf file, to do so you will need a pdf reader to get the file. Use one scarecrow or all of them.
Print out the template that works best for you and your scarecrow activities. Use white card stock paper for painting or using a bunch of glue. If you are coloring or tracing with the template printing on white printer paper works.
If you are coloring or painting the template you can do that directly on the sheet of paper.
Then cut out the separate pieces. For the building a scarecrow use the template to trace the pieces on construction paper or colorful cardstock paper.
Now it is time to glue pieces together. Glue the printable scarecrow craft together. Start with the top of the body. Then glue the pant legs on next. Then add the head in front of the top part of the body and the scarecrow’s hat add on top of the head.
Instead of gluing the pieces together you can punch a hole in the area connecting the arms and legs to the body. Punch a hole on both sides of the body then both sides of the bottom part of the body where the legs connect. Then enter brad pins into each arm and leg closing the brad behind them. This will make the arms and legs move so you can have a dancing scarecrow!
The scarecrows can then be added to a piece of paper for the background or turned into a puppet. Add a fun pumpkin patch scene in the background. Kids can draw or paint fall colors on the background paper. For the background you can use cardstock, printer, or construction paper. I tend to use the paper I have on hand.
Now you have some cute and happy scarecrows!
