If you're like me and have fall-themed paper plates left over... you can make a paper plate scarecrow with your kids!
Got to say, those dollar store plates sure dress up nicely!
What you need:
- Paper plates (any colour/design will do!)
- Construction paper or foamy sheets (orange or yellow)
- Brown paint
- Googly eyes
- Red pipe cleaner (optional)
Start by gluing on googly eyes and cutting and gluing a triangle nose.
Then, add a mouth either by painting one on, or by gluing on a curved red pipe cleaner.
Ben's scarecrow had to have a crown instead of the traditional scarecrow hat... yes it's very original!
If we'd had raffia I would have added that for hair - a nice touch of texture!
We've made lots of scarecrow crafts at momstown this month! Take a look at:
