Fall is definitely my favorite season. With the weather cooling down, flannel, apple picking and all things pumpkin, it really is a great time of year.

One thing that we always we while out doing the fall festivities is of course scarecrows. From farms to grocery stores, they are always being used as a seasonal decoration.

I wanted to create a simple Fall craft and thought that the scarecrow would be the perfect imagery to work with. This free printable build a scarecrow craft is a fun activity that is great for a variety of ages. It can be used at home, in the classroom, in a library setting, at parties or anywhere else that needs some festive Fall fun.

Supplies needed:

  • Free printable template (download link is located at the bottom of this post)
  • Crayons, markers or colored pencils
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Construction paper

How to use the template:

First, print out the coloring page template using the link at the bottom of this post. You can either print it out onto white printer paper or white cardstock.

Next, using art supplies such as crayons, markers or colored pencils, begin coloring in the shapes that will make up the scarecrow.

Once everything has been colored in you can begin to cut out all of the pieces along the dotted lines. If your child is able to use scissors, this would be a great time for them to practice their scissor skills. If not, you can help them instead.

Take out a piece of construction paper and then begin gluing the parts of the scarecrow together in the correct spots. There is a small reference picture at the bottom of the template page that you can reference.

Once the scarecrow has been completed you can now hang it up around the house or classroom, on the fridge or anywhere else you would like some fun homemade Fall decorations.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
