How about falling into this super cute fall craft that was inspired by This Girl's Life Blog?!
This popsicle stick scarecrow was so easy to make! Here's what you'll need...
- 12 popsicle sticks
- Orange paint
- Flesh-colored paint
- Googly eyes
- Orange felt
- Fall flower
- Black permanent marker
- Hot glue gun
Line up nine of the popsicle sticks to create somewhat of a square.
Attach the two trimmed popsicle sticks across the back using a hot glue gun.
If you'll be having your students paint these, I would draw a diagonal line across the top so that they know where to paint the orange and flesh-colored paint. I did not do this for myself, but I will definitely be doing this for my kiddos.
Paint the remaining popsicle stick orange. This will be used to create the brim of the scarecrow's hat.
Attach the hat brim, googly eyes, felt nose, fall flower and raffia hair using a hot glue gun. Draw on a cute scarecrow mouth, and your popsicle stick scarecrow is complete! Isn't he so stinkin' cute?!
Here's an easy step-by-step picture guide. Feel free to pin for future reference!

To go along with our cute popsicle stick scarecrow, we'll be learning a simple scarecrow poem that we'll place inside of our poetry binders. After reading the poem each day, we will complete a different activity... including locating the word wall words, learning the word "big," practicing the sh- digraph, and highlighting the capital letters.
Plus, we'll be playing this fun sight word game! My kiddos always go crazy for the "Shoo!" card!
