Have your little one color and design this preschool printable scarecrow template however they desire.
If your child is very young, cut out the scarecrow drawing for them and let them handle the glue.
Attach the cute scarecrow template on a small paper lunch bag. We decided to add fancy details such as googly eyes, long strips of colored paper for the hair and buttons on the body.
4. Cute Paper Plate Scarecrow Craft
Kids love to spend quality time with their parents doing easy DIY arts and crafts.
Preschoolers will love the process of painting, cutting and pasting together to transform a recycled paper plate into a friendly looking scarecrow.
Let your child paint the paper plate and set it aside to dry.
Cut out a large triangle shape from cardstock and attach it on the plate. We glue some short brown yarns for the hair.
Now for the face, glue the googly eyes and a small orange triangle for the nose.
Draw a wide smile to make your scarecrow look joyful. Tape a large popsicle stick at the back of your paper plate so your little one can hold it.
