Scarecrows bring an autumn-themed look to decorations both inside and out... and to the craft room too.
Make a clay pot scarecrow with your kids and see what personality they bring to their scarecrow!
What you need:
- Brown and orange paint
- Clay pot
- Orange foam sheet
- Googly eyes
- Brown pipe cleaners
Turn the pot on its side. Glue on googly eyes, then paint a mouth and nose with brown or orange paint.
Cut out a hat shape from the orange foam sheet. Cut brown pipe cleaners and/or orange paper strips to make the scarecrow's hair. Glue to the top of the pot and then stick on the hat (it will cover the hair and hold it on tight).
This is a great craft to display on a windowsill. Just be sure to tell little ones that the clay pots will break if dropped!
You can also make your own clay pots out of air-dry dough - check out the momstown kids at work!
