Free Printable Cut and Paste Scarecrow Craft Template

Where we live, October means the weather is starting to cool down, the corn fields have been harvested, and leaves are changing to rich red and gold. In my mind, fall practically begs for an indoor day with a pot of simmering chili, apple crisp, and scarecrow crafts with the kids. Here’s a fun Cut-and-Paste Scarecrow Craft template with a free printable scarecrow template to add to your must-dos this fall.

This is our favorite scarecrow book to go along with this kids craft!

How To Use the Scarecrow Template

Paint or color the scarecrow printable pattern pieces. My kids are often asking to paint, so we usually paint our printable template crafts. Washable tempera paint in fall colors, like dark brown and yellow, is our go-to choice for autumn crafts.

Depending on the look you desire, cut on the outside or inside of each shape’s black outline. Since this template includes several small or intricate pieces, younger kids may need help with this step.

Cutting construction paper is also a great fine motor activity for kids. So, if you would prefer, you can print the scarecrow templates onto construction paper and then have the kids build a scarecrow after they cut out the pieces.

Assemble scarecrow puppets with glue, beginning with the larger main pieces: head, hat, shirt, pants.

Next, add the scarecrow’s embellishments to give it some character! I included several pieces in the printable scarecrow template so kids can decorate to their imagination’s content. Some will want to go all out, while others may keep it simple. The fun part of these preschool scarecrow printables is there is no right way to assemble them.

Cut the “wood stick” template piece into one long and two short sections. No worries about them being exact.

Place a little glue on the pieces of “straw” and tuck the pieces under the hat, sleeves, pant legs (or wherever you wish). Place the short “stick” pieces under each arm, and the long one between the legs to make your scarecrow appear to be hanging on a wooden post.
