Black Crows.

I LOVE these sweet little crows!
This is the second year I've done these with the kids and they're SO cute!

Construction paper
White Glue
Glue Sticks
Googly Eyes

I cut out a bunch of 4" circles, enough for each kid to get one circle.
Then, I cut another set of 4" circles and cut those ones in half - for the wings.
The head is a 2.5" circle.
Glue the small black circle to the larger black circle.

Using orange construction paper, I folded it in half long ways and cut 1/2" strips
and used zig-zag scissors to make it look like little claws on the bottom of each strip.
Flip the crow over and on the back side glue down the skinny orange legs.

Turn it back to the front side and using the white glue, pick out your googlye eyes and glue down.

Use your glue stick and little yellow triangle for the beak.

Adding the wings to each side of the bird.

A slice of fresh yellow corn on one of his wings.
I cut a bunch of yellow corns, about 1/3" the size of the wings.

Don't forget the green husks.
I traced the shape of a corn on to green paper and cut it out,
then using the zig-zag scissors again I cut the husks in half to give it a more realistic look.

He is so cute, you won't mind him stealing your corn!

Paper Plate Scarecrows.

These Paper Plate Scarecrows are SO adorable and super easy!


Paper Plates
Brown Paint
Construction Paper
Glue Sticks
Googly Eyes

First, I painted a bunch of paper plates light brown.

Next, using thin yellow strips of paper, the children added "hair" to their heads.

They cut out thier Scarecrow hats, using a glue stick adding glue along the bottom of the hat and applying the hat to the top of the head.

Every Scarecrow needs a little flower in his hat.

And only the most debonaire Scarecrows have bowties!

Don't forget to cut a triangle nose!

Googly eyes and a nice smile to finish.

Such a happy Scarecrow!
