Kid’s Craft: Scarecrow Puppet


Fun for the fall- Print and color this scarecrow to create a puppet. I left the face blank. You can either chose to add a picture of your child to the scarecrow puppet, or you can discuss parts of the face and have them decorate their own. I included examples of both.
Here is a poem that I found to go along with the theme:
Sung to: "I'm a little teapot"

I'm a little scarecrow stuffed with hay.
Here I stand in a field all day.
When I see the crows,
I like to shout
"Hey! You crows, you better get out!"
Classified: Easy
