Paperbag Scarecrow

This craft was apart of our fall themed preschool week.  Oh how we love festive and adorable decorations to place around the home... and Harmony enjoyed coloring the scarecrow pieces for his/her face, cutting them, and pasting them on the paper bag.  

Tidbit* Helping your child learn how to control the hands, thumbs, and pointer finger movements through activities such as cutting and pasting allows for better writing skills and hand control.

When Harmony glued all of her decorations on for the Scarecrow's face..Stuff the bag with newspaper or magazine pages.  We opted for the magazine pages.  

Sometimes I do not grasp the clearest concept of a simple craft project, like this one.  I decided to use pipe-cleaners to seal the top of the bag- but you should fold the top of your bag and staple it.  
On every Thanksgiving Craft that we do, we are writing somewhere on it what we are thankful for.  This one states, "I'm thankful for my Mommy, Daddy, Unicorns, and my Baby Brother."

Have fun teaching your child about scarecrows and what their purpose is.

Scarecrow, Scarecrow

Scarecrow, scarecrow,
How scary can you be? You scared (Baby Brother)
But you didn't scare me!

Happy Fun Fall Crafting and Happy Thanksgiving!
