    scarecrow art
    By Cathy W

    Clip to ScrapBook
    With my 4-5's, I have done the following scarecrow craft:
    --I have a scarecrow picture that is in pieces. I photocopy it on colored constriction paper (dark blue, green orange and brown work best). Children cut it out (or you can cut out the body and children cut out the legs/arms). Pieces are either attatched with brass fasteners or glued together. Then children use brushes to put white glue on the scarecrow where straw would be sticking out. Decorate with buttons, tissue paper "patches" if desired. Then they can sprinkle shredded wheat on the glue. They may be mounted on a craft stick to be used as puppets.
