Need a fun and EASY kids art and craft project for the autumn season? Check out these craft stick scarecrows. I used felt for the head, but construction paper works too!

Check out the video to learn how to make these little cuties!
Start with all the supplies organized into my Deflecto Caddy Storage Tray to help keep all the supplies organized so the kids can see the supplies they will use and make crafting happier and easier!
Pull out 7 craft sticks (also known as popsicle sticks) and cut one in half - a parent will need to this part. Set up 6 sticks in a row, stagger them for a little extra interest, and using kids white school glue use the two half sticks to hold the set of 6 together by gluing them perpendicularly.
Cut felt (or construction paper) into 3 sections in any fall colors you want. The section are the following measurements:
Square hat top 3 x 3 inches
Bottom hat section 1 x 4 inches
Hat band 3 x 0.5 inches
Have the kids measure out the sections to get a little math in the craft - nothing wrong with a little whole learning :)
Glue the square hat on first, then the bottom section, then the band, and last for a little fun add a flower if you want.
To finish the scarecrow glue in the google eyes, triangle nose, and draw in the mouth to complete the look.
What color scarecrow hat will your kids make?
