Fun Fall Scarecrow Papercraft ActivitySeptember 1, 2020
This scarecrow papercraft activity will keep your child busy for twenty minutes to half an hour. Just enough time for you to season your food and get dinner started.
It is still a great papercraft activity even if your child needs lots of help from you, it is a great way to bond with your child.
The scarecrow papercraft is fairly easy for some kids, if they do not have good fine motor skills, print a couple of the template provided. You want your child to cut it all out themselves.
Cutting is a great way to practice skills like hand and eye coordination, fine motor skills, and following directions. So if your child is just beginning these skills, print a few copies to allow them the ability to practice those skills.
List of Supplies:
- Colored craft papers
- Craft glue
- Scarecrow papercraft template
Let’s get started on your scarecrow – Instructions
Scarecrow pieces – Step 1:
Select colored craft papers for the scarecrow papercraft. Trace the template patterns on the papers and cut them out nicely. Or for added creativity and more practice, print the template and let your child color it, then cut out the pieces and then assemble the scarecrow.
Scarecrow Assembly – Step -2:
Grab the shirt patterns and stick the 2 small rectangles on both sides of the square shape. To craft the hat, stick the rectangle on the bottom side of the triangle shape.
Scarecrow Papercraft – Step – 3:
Flip the hat and shirt pieces to the other side before making the actual craft.
Scarecrow Head Assembly – Step – 4:
For the head pattern, stick the triangle in the middle of the circle and the 2 round shapes on both sides of the nose. Stick the strips on the top side of the circle (hair). Stick the hat over the hair strips.
Scarecrow Body Assembly – Step – 5:
Stick the overall square with the shirt by overlapping the bottom half of the shirt square.
Scarecrow Outfit Assembly – Step – 6:
Stick the small circles on the small strips and attach them over the shirt and slightly overlapping the overall square with the sides with circles.
Scarecrow Feet Assembly – Step – 7:
