What You'll Find on This Page
Living in the countryside we have seen quite a few scarecrows but my favourites are always the ones that show a bit of creativity and flare. With this free printable your child can add their own artistic flare, either just grabbing colouring pens or paints or trying out one activities below.

Crafts and Activity Ideas
Colouring: this template is prefect for colouring and it’s the most easy way to decorate it too. Just grab some colouring pencils or pens or your favourite paints and paintbrush and get creative.
Paper Plate Scarecrow Craft: Check out our tutorial for our paper plate scarecrow craft with it’s farm background.
Playdough Mat: As our printable doesn’t have a face it would be a fun one to use for a playdough mat. Grab some playdough and roll some out to make a mouth and use little balls to make the eyes. You could stick down some playdough hair too. If you’d like to use this as a playdough mat you might find it useful to laminate the PDF first.
Scrap Paper Mosaic: Cut squares and rectangles from scrap paper and glue them on to your scarecrow. As scarecrows are traditionally a bit messy this kind of make do craft from old materials feels pretty appropriate! I’d stick them onto the scarecrows top and draw in the face but you can do whatever way you prefer.
Torn Paper: Again torn paper feels like a good option for a bit of a messy craft! Just tear up scraps of paper and glue them onto your scarecrows hat and top to decorate them.
