Dig around in your cupboards for a mason jar, coffee filters, and buttons... that you can use - to make a scarecrow decoration with your kids!
You can make this with items you probably have around the house - a great way to recycle them!
What you need:
- Coffee filters
- Mason jar (or coffee can, or tin can)
- Ribbon (optional)
- Construction paper or foam
- Glue or tape
Wrap brown craft or construction paper around the mason jar. Secure with glue, tape or ribbon. Fold the bottom ends around the bottom of the jar to secure.
Glue on two or more coffee filters to the lid, to make the scarecrow's hat. You could decorate the hat too!
Use glue to secure button eyes, add a triangle nose, and use string to form the mouth - good fine motor practice for kids here!
